WASILLA — A pilot walked away after crash-landing his small airplane on the Seward-Meridian Highway in Wasilla.

Alaska State Troopers say there is a small airstrip near the highway. It appears the plane had trouble after taking off, and the pilot wound up crash landing on the highway.

The pilot reported no injuries.

Troopers were called at 8:30 a.m., and the road was reopened about an hour later.

No other details were immediately available.
