HOULTON, Maine (AP) — A stalled engine is being blamed for forcing a small plane to make an emergency landing on Interstate 95 in Maine.

No one was injured when the plane landed Saturday in Houlton, near the Canadian border.

The pilot told police the 1961 Cessna 172 carrying him and two passengers had engine problems after taking off from the Houlton International Airport. As he tried to return to the airport the engine lost power and stalled.

The pilot landed the plane on the northbound side of the interstate. The plane was towed back to the airport.
