Officials initially said that "there were two souls on board and no injuries were reported." They said later that one male pilot was transported to hospital by the Los Angeles Fire Department "with a non-life threatening leg injury that was sustained during evacuation."
A mechanical issue was reported on the commercial airplane before landing which was flying from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey to Los Angeles.
The malfunction was found at the left main landing gear, which the crew was unable to extend, reported local news outlet City News Service, citing Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will undertake an investigation into the accident. ■
