BURLESON, Texas - Rush-hour motorists got a surprise as they saw a small plane make a belly landing on a North Texas freeway service road.

The incident happened just after 5 p.m. Friday on Interstate 35W about 15 miles south of Fort Worth in the suburb of Burleson. City spokeswoman Sally Ellertson says the single-engine aircraft made the emergency landing on the southbound service road of the interstate after developing engine trouble.

Ellertson said none of the four people aboard was injured and no vehicles were hit on the ground.
