SARNIA, Ont. -- A small plane carrying five people made an emergency landing on a highway east of Sarnia Friday night after police say the pilot reported technical trouble.
Police in the southern Ontario city say Joseph Arseneau, 62, of Sudbury, alerted them just before 10 p.m. that his radio and navigation equipment had gone dead.
Sgt. Paul Mamak says Arseneau lost contact with air traffic control in Toronto and didn't have enough fuel to reach Sarnia Airport.
No one was injured.
A stretch of Highway 402 was blocked to traffic for several hours overnight. The aircraft has since been removed from the road.
Transport Canada is investigating, along with provincial police.
