STAFFORD TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Police have released a video of a small plane carrying students from a skydiving school making an emergency landing on a New Jersey highway.

No one aboard the single-engine plane or on the ground was injured when the plane touched down Sunday morning in Stafford Township on Route 72, one of the main roads between Philadelphia and the Jersey shore.

The video shows the plane coasting over traffic before the pilot puts it down in the grass median.

Authorities say the plane apparently lost power shortly after taking off. It’s unknown what caused the problem.

Besides the pilot, three skydiving students and an instructor were aboard the plane.
