A plane made an emergency landing on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx, according to New York City's Office of Emergency Management. It wasn't immediately clear why.

Officials with the city's Fire Department and Office of Emergency Management say the plane touched down Saturday afternoon on the Major Deegan Expressway in the area of East 233rd Street.

The highway was then closed and emergency personnel were on the scene.

ABC in New York reports that there were three people on board. Everyone got out of the plane and was being evaluated by emergency medical technicians. It appears none of the injuries was life-threatening.
