A small plane has landed on a busy US road after dealing with an emergency, new stunning footage released by local authorities shows.

The video shows drivers slowing down on a busy road as a small plane comes towards them while flying low, lands during a break in traffic, and stops at a red light.

The incident happened on State Road 7, near Tacoma, in Washington State, on Thursday morning.



Washington State Patrol said the plane, a single prop KR2, suffered a fuel system malfunction causing it to stall and forcing the pilot to perform an emergency landing

The video was captured by a Washington State Patrol officer's dashcam.

Washington State Police said they were not alerted to the pilot's difficulties in advance and that the video was taken just because an officer happened to be passing by.

Police only intervened after the landing to push the plane clear the roadway after it stopped at the intersection.
