The emergency landing occurred in Longwood at about 3:45 p.m.

A small airplane landed in the center, closed lanes of I-4 in Seminole County on Friday afternoon, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. It remained unclear if there were any passengers on board the aircraft, but authorities say no injuries were reported in the plane or on the ground.

"She's cutting in and out".
