LINCOLN PARK - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says a small plane crashed near a northern New Jersey airport today.

Spokesman Jim Peters says police said the aircraft came down near Lincoln Park Airport in Morris County.

According to the FAA, the name of the pilot is Les Gwyn-Williams. FAA officials say Gwyn-Williams suffered severe leg and head injuries from the crash and was taken to Morristown Hospital. Gwyn-Williams was conscious when emergency crews pulled him out of the plane.

FAA registration records show the single-engine Cessna is registered to a private owner in nearby Verona. News 12 New Jersey has learned that Gwyn-Williams owns Terry's Family Pharmacy in Verona, but employees at the pharmacy had no comment.
