Small plane makes emergency landing on Ventura Co. freeway

Posted: Updated:

    
MOORPARK, Calif. (AP) - Motorists got a shock when a small plane made an emergency landing on a Southern California freeway just as the evening commute was getting under way.
    
The California Highway Patrol says vehicles had to swerve to avoid hitting the two-seat aircraft when it touched down on State Route 23 in Ventura County Monday.
    
Student-pilot Danielle Lagree tells the Ventura County Star she was flying with her instructor when the engine began to sputter. Lagree says the instructor calmly took over and managed to put the single-engine plane down in lanes without hitting any vehicles. Nobody was hurt.
    
The aircraft had left Van Nuys and was en route to Camarillo Airport. Southbound lanes were briefly blocked while crews towed the plane to the center divider.
    
The incident is under investigation.

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
