(Newser) – A single-engine aircraft has made an emergency landing on the New Jersey Turnpike this morning, and no one is injured. A Turnpike Authority spokesman says the plane with two people aboard landed in the northbound lanes in Cherry Hill, about 5 miles east of Philadelphia.

Officials believe the plane had been handling traffic reports for a Philadelphia radio and TV station. The spokesman says police want to get the plane off to the side of the turnpike and it will be loaded onto a truck.
