A small skydiving plane was forced to make an emergency landing on a New Jersey highway on 12 July, leaving one passenger with minor injuries.

A video of the incident shows the aircraft gliding on to the grass-covered middle of the highway, narrowly missing passing vehicles.

According to officials, the single-engine plane was carrying five people, including students from a nearby skydiving school, when it ran out of power. It managed to make a safe landing around 10.15am.

The skydiving instructor sustained a cut on his arm, but no other injuries were reported. The incident is now being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration, according to local media.
