NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing in the middle of Ashland City Highway on Tuesday afternoon.

The pilot, Lenny Sikora, says he and his girlfriend were traveling from Key Largo to Wisconsin when they lost power and the helicopter dropped.

Sikora said they had to clear the wires, so they landed in the middle of the roadway near Old Hickory Boulevard and pushed it to the side of the road.

No one was injured, but there was some damage to the tail of the helicopter.
