Massachusetts State Troopers in Greenfield, located just outside Berkshire County had quite the eventful evening with a very unusual traffic stop.

Reports from Massachusetts State Troopers report that shortly after 5:30 p.m. yesterday, March 2, a small plane was forced to make an emergency landing on Route 91 in Greenfield after suffering a mechanical failure.

Thankfully, the pilot was able to remain calm in a very scary situation and made a successful landing with zero indecent. There were two other occupants onboard, amazingly enough, no parties suffered any injuries. On top of that incredible feat, no other vehicles were involved.

Responding Troopers were able to assist in rotating the plane in order to allow traffic to pass.

As of last night, special crews and equipment were en route to the scene to remove the plane.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
