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.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio  says the plane was headed back to the Danbury, Conn., airport after touring the Statue of Liberty when it experienced engine trouble and set down on the highway 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.
