NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A small plane made an emergency landing on a busy boulevard median in New Orleans and struck a van carrying three women and two children.

The pilot hurt his arm but there were no other injuries.

Police spokesman Garry Flot says 60-year-old pilot Houston Hunter told police that his single-engine Piper was flying at 13,000 feet when it suffered mechanical trouble and had to land.

He landed on the wide, grassy median of the boulevard in the city's Lakeview neighborhood and struck the minivan after touching down.

The National Transportation and Safety Board will investigate.
