The FAA is taking over the investigation of an incident of a Bismarck pilot making an emergency landing on I-94 on Saturday (Dec. 2) night.

According to a news release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol, Jerry Schauer was flying a 1974 Cessna Cardinal airplane from Fargo to Bismarck.

The plane experienced a total engine failure and the pilot guided the plane onto I-94 just west of Valley City in the westbound lanes.

Following the landing onto the highway, Schauer was able to guide the plane off the side of the road and into a ditch.

There were no injuries or car accidents as a result of the emergency landing.

The plane was left in the ditch overnight and officials said they would retrieve it during daylight hours on Sunday.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the FAA is aware of the incident and they are the organization that will initiate a response if any at all. The North Dakota Highway Patrol will not be investigating the matter any further.
