Plane engine failure leads to emergency landing on roadway in Libertyville

No one was hurt when a small plane made an emergency landing in Libertyville Friday night after an engine failure, the Libertyville Fire Department said.

The plane landed on South Milwaukee Avenue by a Trader Joe’s in Libertyville around 10:15 p.m., the fire department said.

“It’s not every day when you see a plane land on Milwaukee Ave.,” the fire department said in a Facebook post.

Fire crews responded to the scene. The pilot was not injured.

“Looks like a textbook landing, given the circumstances,” the fire department said.

The Libertyville Police Department also said on Facebook, “This might of been a first for us last night. We are glad everyone is safe.”
