JOIE CHEN, CNN ANCHOR: There's a small plane that has crashed in the Miami area. WSVN, there are minor injuries according to WSVN in Miami, Florida. But this is a huge intersection down at fort Lauderdale near the executive airport. We are not sure how the plane crash is related to the airport. Cypress Creek Road in Fort Lauderdale and Andrews Avenue: a very major intersection as you see there. You see a bus. You see, if they will show us a little bit from more from WSVN, a little bit more of the picture.

This is taken few minutes ago from WSVN. You see that this plane has crashed down there right dead in the intersection. But as we say, it is very close to an executive airport. Local affiliates down there WSVN from Miami covering this still developing story. It is happening right now and we are continuing to follow it here.

Take a look again at the intersection there. You can see that this is an intersection big enough for buses to cross through and some other vehicles as well. It looks like they foamed down very carefully and removed people from inside the plane. So we are looking to that as well.

We don't see any other people being brought from the scene but it looks like they cleared the person from that, I guess some sort of Ford Bronco, or something like that, sitting in the middle of the intersection. Don't know about any other injuries on the location.

CNN is continuing to follow this. We will get the latest from WSVN in Miami and out other affiliates down there and bring you the information as we get it here.
