FAA investigating emergency landing on I-295

CUMBERLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Federal Aviation Administration continues to investigate why a small, single engine plane made an emergency landing on Interstate 295. 

The Cessna 152, with only the pilot aboard, dodged rush hour traffic on the busy highway before coming to a rest in the southbound passing lane and median just after five o'clock on Thursday. 

The pilot, Sachin Hejeji of Falmouth reported that the plane lost power while he was returning to the Portland International Jetport after flying to Waterville earlier in the day. 

The plane swooped in low over the roadway in near pitch black conditions, and was able to avoid being hitting other vehicles or causing an accident.  Witnesses say it was a miracle no one and nothing was struck.
