US police have released dramatic footage which shows a small plane making an emergency landing on a busy highway.

The video shows how the pilot touches the ground, overtakes several cars and then quickly steers onto the grass area in the centre of the road to avoid a collision.

The plane made the emergency landing on Route 72 in Stafford, New Jersey last Sunday.

Stafford Township Police Department report that the single engine plane was carrying five people at the time of the incident, including students from a local sky diving school.

The decision to make an emergency landing was made after the engine lost its power.

Nobody was seriously injured in the incident. One sky dive instructor was treated for a small cut on his arm.
