It is not clear if the plane's landing gear failed to deploy or collapsed during the landing, according to the Associated Press. The craft's propelled appear bent from striking the pavement, the agency said.

It did not have any lights on when it landed, according to NBC affiliate KTVB.

Traffic was backing up on the interstate, state police said. Two lanes of traffic were closed, and crews were working to clear the scene.
