A small plane crashed Wednesday morning on a highway northwest of Atlanta, Georgia, disrupting traffic, authorities said.

Dashcam footage from a driver obtained by Fox News Digital shows the moment the plane came out of the sky and crashed into the median of Highway 41 in Kennesaw around 10:15 a.m.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane was a single-engine Grumman American AA-1.

The pilot was the only person on board and reported engine trouble after departing Cobb County International Airport-McCollum Field, according to the agency.

Kennesaw police identified the pilot as Corey Robertson, without providing further details. An officer said he walked away from the wreckage and refused to go to the hospital.

The pilot severed a guide wire and power line during the forced landing, police said. Georgia Power repaired the power line.

The department posted a photo on Facebook showing the plane nose down in the grassy median between the north and south lanes.

Authorities blocked Cobb Parkway north of Kennesaw Due West Road for a few hours while they investigate. The aircraft has since been towed and both lanes have been reopened.
