    A stretch of Interstate 35 north of Georgetown had some unusual traffic with more of a high-flying nature.

    The Department of Public Safety says nobody was hurt Thursday morning when a single-engine plane made an emergency landing on an I-35 access road.

    Authorities say the plane apparently had engine trouble and the pilot, 39-year-old Robert Nitche of La Grange, managed to land on a section of frontage road with little traffic, not far from Georgetown Municipal Airport.

    The plane was later loaded on to a flatbed truck for transport.
