NEW YORK – A small plane made an emergency landing on a New York City Highway late Saturday afternoon.

A driver on the major Deegan Expressway shot a cell phone video as he drove past the plane.

Police say the Piper Aircraft set down on the northbound lanes of the Expressway.

The male pilot and two female passengers were taken to the hospital, but police said they didn’t appear to be badly injured.

The FAA said the landing gear appears to have collapsed, but the plane had only minor damage.

No vehicles on the highway were hit.
