(NBC) - One person suffered minor injuries Saturday night when a small plane landed on a busy interstate in California.

A single-engine Cessna made an emergency landing on Interstate 580 in Alameda County, just west of Castro Valley.

The pilot reported a rough-running engine and then landed on the freeway around 6:45 p.m.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said the pilot was trying to get to the nearby Hayward Airport when a fuel line ruptured.

The plane was not damaged and neither were any of the vehicles on the freeway.

There were two people in the plane at the time and one of them reported suffering from pain.
