Default Its Freeway Landing Season Again

"NEW LENOX, Ill. (WLS) -- Part of I-355 was closed for several hours Thursday after a small plane landed on the Tollway near New Lenox.
"It just dropped right out of the sky," said witness Ed.

Family members also said the pilot is very experienced and that the plane took off from Lewis University Airport. The pilot, who is the father of two of the girls, took them for a ride to enjoy the nice weather, family said.
She is in a lot of pain in her back," McKim's mom Michele said.

The plane was only in the air for about five minutes before making the crash landing, according to flight records.
Drivers nearby were shocked to see the plane slimming down onto the expressway.
"I did not expect it," Dieringer added. "You are just driving and right in front of you this thing drops."
Police said the emergency landing was due to unknown mechanical issues.
During the landing, family members told ABC7 that the plane hit a barrier.

"MAY 31, 2021 8:55 PM PT
A small plane landed Monday evening on the 101 Freeway in Westlake Village, disrupting traffic as drivers were returning home at the end of Memorial Day weekend.

Nobody was injured when the single-engine Cessna landed in the southbound lanes near Lindero Canyon Road just before 7 p.m., said Michael , a supervising fire dispatcher at the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Rescue workers managed to guide the plane down the freeway’s Reyes Adobe Road exit ramp in Agoura Hills in less than an hour, authorities said.. Several highway signs needed to be cut down to make room for the plane’s wings, they said."
