Cars lined the road where the plane landed.
“I’ve seen planes land all over the place, but never a plane that goes over the sky and lands on the road,” said driver Larry Hobbs.
“You go up in the air and fly a half a mile or a mile and then the next minute you see a plane land on the highway.”

Another man and woman, which were on the ground trying to free the person trapped in the plane, were also injured, police said.
