HARDING, N.J. (AP) ' Five people died when a small plane headed for Georgia crashed on one of the New York City area's busiest highways.

Authorities say they were three adults and two children. It wasn't clear whether they were a family.

Witnesses told the FAA the single-engine appeared to break up as it spiraled into the wooden median strip and exploded on Interstate 287 in Harding, N.J.

FAA spokesman Jim Peters says the plane had taken off from Teterboro Airport and was headed for DeKalb Peachtree Airport near Atlanta.

Peters says there was a garbled transmission from the plane before it dropped off the radar.
