Pilot forced to make emergency landing

Some scary moments after a plane makes an emergency landing on a highway just across the Kentucky-Virginia border.

Police say Jerry Horton was flying the single engine plane when it landed on U.S. 23 near Wise, Virginia. We're told it ran out of fuel after taking off from a nearby airport. The plane blocked both lanes for about an hour before refueling and taking off again.

No one was hurt in the incident.
