A plane has landed safely on a city street in California's Silicon Valley during rush-hour traffic.

The pilot noticed a malfunction shortly after take-off and was forced to make an emergency landing.

The plane managed to avoid traffic on the roadway and pulled off into a right-turn lane.

A spokeswoman for San Jose police said neither the pilot nor the passenger on board was injured and no one on the ground was hurt.

The Bellanca 7ECA single-engine aircraft is owned by Amelia Reid Aviation LLC.

The company operates a flight training school from nearby Reid Hillview airport in east San Jose.
