    People look over the area where a banner broke loose from the airplane towing it before falling to the ground, Thursday, June 14, 2018 in Trenton, New Jersey. The banner fell under clear skies as the plane flew over the state's capital before hitting a black automobile.

    An airplane-towed banner broke loose and came down near New Jersey's statehouse, fluttering to the ground and shattering the rear windshield of a parked car.

    The banner fell under clear skies Thursday as the plane flew over the state's capital before hitting a black Kia sedan. It carried an advertisement for expanding pre-kindergarten and said "50,000 NJ Kids Are Waiting."

    Emblazoned on the banner was the name "Pre-K Our Way," a nonprofit that pushes for bringing pre-kindergarten to additional towns. A message left with the group wasn't immediately answered.

    It wasn't immediately known what caused the banner to fall. No injuries were reported.
