There was a bizarre incident on I-10 this morning near LaPlace, as a small plane had to make an emergency landing in the median. That's according to Melissa Matey with State Police. She says the aircraft had some mechanical failures.

"The pilot had to put the airplane down in the median, near the St John/St James parish lines." said Matey.

Matey says State Police was able to tow the plane off the scene. She says it was smart of the pilot to do some quick thinking.

"That was the safest place it could land," said Matey. "There were no injuries."
