NEW LENOX, Ill. (AP) — A stalled engine forced the pilot of a small aircraft to make an emergency landing Thursday on Interstate 355 near Interstate 80 south of Chicago, according to authorities.

Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Brian McKinney said the pilot and three passengers were aboard the single-engine Beechcraft B24R when it landed on the southbound lanes of I-355 near New Lenox. After the landing, which damaged the aircraft, the pilot and three passengers all complained of minor neck pain and were evaluated by paramedics on scene, McKinney said.
