A small plane crash-landed near Westchester County Airport shortly before 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, according to Rye Brook police.
The pilot, whose identity is not being released, suffered "minor lacerations" on his face and was taken to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla. The pilot was the only person onboard and was conscious, making the 911 call that initially went through to Harrison before the plane's GPS located the aircraft in Rye Brook.
According to police, the pilot had "difficulty" with the plane and attempted to make an emergency landing at the airport. As the plane came down it apparently clipped some trees before making landfall at 1100 King Street in the Reckson Executive Park, where it "spun a couple of times" in the parking lot before coming to a stop on its belly, said a police source.
The nose of the plane and landing gear were damaged.
The call came through at 12:30 a.m. and Rye Brook, Harrison, and Westchester County police responded. Harrison EMS and FAA investigators were also on the scene. The plane is now secured at Westchester County Airport.
The FAA is conducting an investigation.
