Skydiving Plane Had to Land on a Busy Highway in New Jersey

A single-engine plane made an emergency landing on a busy highway in New Jersey, about 30 miles north of Atlantic City. But somehow the pilot missed all the cars, and a camera on an overpass got it on video.
He started having engine problems at 4,000 feet, and couldn't make it to an airport. So he landed on the road, and then managed to swerve onto the median where there was a long patch of grass.
A skydiving instructor on board ended up with a cut on his arm, and the plane has some damage from hitting a few road signs, but that's it.
