PARAMUS -

A small plane with four people aboard made an emergency landing Sunday on a golf course in Bergen County.

The plane landed on the ninth hole of the Paramus Golf Course.

Police say three of the occupants were being treated for what appeared to be minor injuries.

Matthew Boyle said he witnessed the landing as he was playing golf.

"Teeing the ball up on the first tee. and just hear this noise of a wind coming at me," he says. "All of the sudden, I look up and this plane's comes flying right over our heads. Goes out on the 18th fairway, lands, goes up over the hill and we all going running after it.  When I got there, the people were already out of the plane, they were lying on the ground. There were probably five, six other people there and I guess everybody was calling 911. So we were able to get them there and get them help."

No injuries were reported on the ground.

Officials say the plane had engine problems shortly after taking off from Lincoln Park Airport in Morris County. It was headed for Poughkeepsie, New York.
