GREEN OAK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WILX) - Any landing everyone walks away from is a successful one.

A small airplane landed on US-23 in Livingston County Saturday, stopping traffic and alerting multiple emergency response agencies. The Michigan State Police (MSP) said they were called to assist the Green Oak Township Police Department when the plane came down, ending its path in a grassy bank by the highway.
