A Los Angeles Police Department airplane made an emergency landing on a busy California highway on Monday without crashing or injuring anyone, according to NBCNews.

Aaron Figueroa, a dispatcher with the California Highway Patrol, said the plane touched down shortly before 7 p.m. local time on U.S. 101 approximately 35 miles north of Los Angeles. 

Only the pilot was on board and luckily, nobody was injured, Figueroa stated. 

It has not yet been made clear as to why the plane made an emergency landing and Los Angeles police did not immediately respond to request for comment. 

In a video that was posted to social media, the plane was seen driving on a major thoroughfare surrounded by cars. Another image showed it on the side of the highway.
