NEW YORK (AP) — A small plane that made an emergency landing on a New York City highway has been removed and the highway has been reopened.
Emergency workers took the Piper PA-28 off the northbound lanes of the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx on a flatbed truck at about 6 p.m. Saturday.
The city's Office of Emergency Management says drivers should expect residual delays.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) says the plane was headed back to a Connecticut airport after touring the Statue of Liberty when it experienced engine trouble and set down on the highway at about 3:20 p.m.
De Blasio says the pilot and two passengers aboard were being treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a Bronx hospital.
