Earlier this afternoon a small, single-engine plane had to make an emergency landing on I-355 in Bolingbrook. Thankfully, according to Bolingbrook Fire Department’s social media, what could have been a disaster ended the best possible way!
Apparently the airplane suffered engine failure before being put down on the highway.
Photos of the plane on the side of the road came in via social media as well.
