Motorists north of the Twin Cities got quite a shock on Saturday morning when a small plane was forced to make an emergency landing on the interstate.

The plane came down on the exit ramp of I-35 near Stacy at around 9:30 a.m., according to the Chisago County Sheriff's Office.

The plane was overheating, forcing the pilot to take the drastic action. They managed to land on the ramp, before taxiing to the parking lot of a Kwik Trip!

"There were no injuries or crashes as a result," the sheriff's office said. "We are deciding whether or not to issue him a citation for being quadruple parked though."

WCCO reports that the man flying the plane was Michael Robbins, of Cambridge, who was traveling from New Richmond, Wisconsin, to his hometown when the emergency happened.
