No injuries have been reported, according to police.

A small plane landed on the Loudoun County Parkway in Loudoun County, Virginia, on Friday, Jan 19, and all seven people on board escaped uninjured, according to the Virginia State Police and the Federal Aviation Administration.

The FAA said the single-engine Cessna 208 Caravan made a “hard landing” on the road around 12:50 p.m. after taking off from Virginia’s Dulles International Airport around 12:15 p.m. The plane was en route to Lancaster Airport in Pennsylvania at the time, the FAA said.

The pilot, co-pilot and five passengers — four adults and a 15-year-old boy — all survived without injury, police said.

The only damage was to the parkway’s guardrail, police said.
