TETERBORO, N.J. – New Jersey State Police say a small plane crashed near Teterboro Airport and the two men on board, the pilot and a passenger, walked away from the fiery wreckage. One man was taken to St. Barnabas Medical Center with burns and the other was taken to Hackensack Medical Center.
Little Ferry police say the twin-engine Beechcraft crashed while trying to land.
