BIXBY, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say that a small plane landed in the middle of a busy intersection in the city of Bixby after the aircraft lost power.

Cpl. Michael Konshak with Bixby police said that the pilot of a 1969 Cessna single-engine plane safely landed about 3:30 p.m. Thursday. Konshak said that the plane did not crash into any cars, but did clip a road sign marking a divided highway. The pilot was not injured.

Police said the plane had departed from Missouri, but its destination was unclear. According to Konshak, crews pushed the plane into the parking lot of a nearby business.

Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration came out to the scene to interview the pilot.
