A plane made an emergency landing on a highway in Spartanburg County Thursday night.
The pilot told News 13 no one was hurt.
The plane departed from Cincinnati earlier Thursday.
The pilot said he lost engine power around 8:30 over Wellford. He had to make an emergency landing on US 29.
The pilot said the plane came within inches of hitting power lines, but it was a clean landing.
No cars were hit, and the five people onboard are okay.
The plane was headed to Charleston and was scheduled to make a fuel stop at GSP International.
The pilot said he's not sure what caused the power failure.
The plane was moved to a nearby parking lot for the night, and the highway is now back open.
