Woman escapes death by landing plane on highway

A trainee pilot escaped death when her plane failed.

Danielle Lagree was with her tutor in Los Angeles when the plane's engine stopped working and she made the quick decision to land on a busy highway, the Daily Star newspaper reports.

She said: "We saw the cable lines and we thought we were going to hit them but we went right over them.

"Thank god all the cars stopped except for one guy - he went right underneath us."
