Dash cam video: Small plane lands safely on highway in San Leandro

- A driver shared some dash cam video of a small plane landing safely on the highway over the weekend in San Leandro.

Eric Geer was driving westbound on Interstate Highway 580 on Saturday evening as he and others watched a pilot about to make an emergency landing on the freeway.

WATCH: Drivers clear path for small plane landing

The drivers helped create a clear space on the freeway, by driving from side to side on the road, allowing the pilot to land the single-engine Cessna without hitting anything and then parking the plane safely on the shoulder.

The FAA said the pilot was heading to the Hayward airport but the engine started running roughly -- and he looked for the safest place to set down.

No one was injured including the passenger on board, officials said.
