A Long Island plane crash has left two people injured as the FAA investigates the cause.
The pilot and passenger on board a single-engine plane that crashed in a residential neighborhood in Bayport, Long Island, were treated at Stony Brook University Hospital on Sunday night, ABC7 reported, adding that both were expected to survive.
"This is nothing short of a miracle — both that the airplane did not hit any houses and any other individuals," Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini was quoted by ABC7. "We're talking about a Sunday evening at 7:00. Clearly, people could be out and about."
The plane, a Piper 28, was headed to upstate New York when it had engine trouble, authorities stated to The Associated Press. It was returning to the Bayport Aerodrome when it crashed.
