NEW YORK (AP) — A small plane has made an emergency landing on an interstate highway in New York City.

Fire Department officials say the plane touched down at 3:20 p.m. Saturday on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx, in an area where the highway passes through Van Cortlandt Park.

The Federal Aviation Administration said three people were on board.

Fire officials say all were taken to a hospital, but there have been no immediate reports of serious injuries.

The FAA said damage to the aircraft was minor. Photos taken by bystanders showed the Piper PA28 largely intact.

It wasn’t immediately clear why the plane set down.

The highway was closed and emergency personnel were on the scene.

FAA records indicated the plane was registered to an owner in South Salem.
