DAVENPORT, Fla. (AP) - A hot air balloon with several passengers on board made an emergency landing along an Interstate 4 median in Polk County.

Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Steve Gaskins posted on his Twitter account that balloon landed Friday morning in the grassy median due to low fuel and heavy fog.

Gaskins said no one in the balloon was hurt.

Officials tweeted photos of the balloon on the ground. Traffic wasn’t affected. And Gaskins said the balloon was picked up shortly after the landing.
