NEW YORK (AP) - Officials say the nose wheel of a Southwest Airlines flight landing at New York's LaGuardia Airport collapsed right after the aircraft touched down on the runway.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says 10 passengers were treated at the scene Monday night, with six being taken to a hospital with minor injuries. The six crew members were taken to another hospital for observation.
Dallas-based Southwest says there were 150 people on the flight, while the Port Authority says it was 149.
The Federal Aviation Administration said Flight 345 from Nashville, Tenn., landed at 5:45 p.m., and came safely to a stop at the edge of the runway. The nose of the Boeing 737 could be seen on the ground.
