GUNTOWN, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Highway Patrol is investigating a plane that made an emergency landing on Highway 45 in Guntown shortly after 8 o'clock on Sunday night.

WTVA News has learned that there were two men on board who are the co-owners of the Cessna 150.

The pilot, J.J. Jasper tells WTVA News that the engine went dead just after 8 p.m. and he had no choice but to land on the highway.
