A small plane made an emergency landing on a road in Parkland Monday afternoon.

Two people were on board the plane and walked away from the landing without injuries, according to Mike Moser, deputy chief of the Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office issued an alert shortly after 4 p.m. warning the public of a “mass traffic disruption” in the area of the plane’s landing, near West Hillsboro Boulevard and Nob Hill Road. Hillsboro Boulevard was shut down just east of Nob Hill Road “until further notice,” according to BSO.

“An investigation is underway due to a small plane landing,” the sheriff’s office said on social media. “Motorists are asked to seek alternate routes.”

A photo of the plane appeared to show it came to rest next to the Parkland Golf & Country Club.

Authorities said no one was injured in the plane or on the ground.

“I am so grateful no one was hurt,” said state Rep. Christine Hunschofsky. “Thank you to all our first responders who showed up on the scene to take care of everyone.”

Additional information about the incident was not immediately available.
