LITCHFIELD, ME (CBS) – A small plane owned by the Maine Department of Fisheries and Wildlife ran into some trouble on Friday and was forced to make an emergency landing on a highway in Litchfield, Maine.

Maine officials say the single engine 1968 Cessna T41C ran out of fuel before touching down on the Maine Turnpike. There were no cars in the area at the time.

The plane was moved off of the highway and both lanes are back open.

It was anticipated that police would have to temporarily stop traffic so the plane could take off after refueling.
