Small Plane Lands on NY Highway, No One Hurt: Police

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.
