North Carolina State Highway Patrol and other first responders are on scene after a small plane landed on Interstate 95 near Wilson, officials said.

NCSHP officials said it happened before 7:30 p.m. around exit 119. No injuries have been reported.

It was an emergency landing, according to firefighters. The plane made it to the exit ramp. All lanes on I-95 are open.

A release from the Federal Aviation Administration said it was a Piper PA-28 aircraft flying from Smithfield to Wilson “when the pilot declared an emergency.” A previous release from the FAA incorrectly identified Rocky Mount as the destination.

No other information was immediately available. CBS 17 has crews headed to the scene and will update this story as it develops.
