A plane crashes at New York's La Guardia airport, after its front landing gear collapsed Monday night.

Southwest airlines flight 345 from Nashville had 150 people on board.

Port authorities say 12 people have been taken to hospitals.

Six passengers suffered minor injuries, and six crew members were taken to a different hospital for observation.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the jet came to a safe stop.

The Port Authority says it hopes to have the airport fully open sometime Tuesday morning.
