A plane crash shuts down part of the Pennyrile Parkway. The small plane went down right next to the highway near Hopkinsville in Christian County, Kentucky.

The sheriff's department says a father and son were hurt in the crash and are expected to be alright. The two say they encountered trouble just before two shortly after taking off from the nearby airport.

Deputies say the plane began losing altitude and attempted an emergency landing on the parkway. It landed on the road's shoulder.

The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate.
