A small plane traveling to Connecticut after taking a tour of the Statue of Liberty made an emergency landing on a New York City interstate highway, startling drivers but touching down safely with no serious injuries to anyone aboard or on the ground, officials said.


The aircraft, a Piper PA-28, set down at around 3:20 p.m. Saturday on the northbound side of the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx borough, in an area where the highway passes through Van Cortlandt Park. (AP)
