Small plane lands on Florida Turnpike north of Miami; at least 2 injured

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — A small plane has landed on the Florida Turnpike north of Miami.

Television pictures show the plane landed Wednesday afternoon on the highway near Hollywood and broke in several places. It didn't appear to have hit any cars. At least two people were on stretchers and being loaded into ambulances.

Hollywood police say the plane landed in the turnpike's northbound lanes and all traffic has been stopped.

Messages left for a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman were not immediately returned.

The single-engine plane's tail number is registered to a leasing company in Miami.
