STOCKBRIDGE, Georgia  - A small aircraft had to make an emergency landing Monday afternoon on a road in Henry County.

The Cessna 172A Skyhawk struck power lines and landed on Millers Mill Road near Berry Hill Airport around 5:40 p.m. They say the pilot aborted the initial approach to the airport and was making another attempt when the accident occurred.

The plane came to a final rest in a ditch. The pilot and one passenger were on board. The Henry County Police Department says there were reports of minor injuries, but no one was transported.

The FAA is investigating. Henry County Police say Millers Mill Road between Country Mill Lane and Dickerson Cove Drive will remain shutdown until the FAA completes the investigation.
