EAST MORICHES, N.Y. (AP) - No one was hurt when a single-engine plane made an emergency landing in the median of a Long Island highway.

Suffolk County police say the plane landed around 1:30 p.m., Thursday between the eastbound and westbound lanes of Sunrise Highway near East Moriches.

Only the pilot was aboard.

The bright yellow plane was towed to nearby Spadaro Airport.

Police say a quick response meant only limited traffic delays on the highway.
