Register Guard

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Authorities say a single-engine plane has made an emergency landing on a highway about 1 mile from the Eugene airport.

The Register-Guard reported the Vans RV12 plane landed on State Highway 99 North Friday afternoon after the pilot reported a problem with the plane’s oil pressure.

Lane Fire Authority Chief Terry Ney told the newspaper it wasn’t a crash but described the incident as “an emergency landing in an inappropriate place.”

Ney, who was at the scene, said everything seemed to be fine.

No further information was immediately released.
