A couple in Southern California shot cell phone video of a small plane making an emergency landing just ahead of them on the freeway.  A student pilot was at the controls when the engine lost power.

The flight instructor had to take over, and he did a great job of maneuvering between several cars as well as the center divider in order to land safely.
