BLAIRSTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Authorities on Saturday continued to investigate a small plane crash near the airport in Blairstown, N.J., in which two Pennsylvania men were injured.

Neither the pilot, Craig Levine of Blue Bell, Pa.; nor his passenger, Matthew Giannini of Harleysville, Pa.; were seriously injured in the crash, which occurred around 11:15 a.m. Friday. Both men were treated at a hospital and later released, but further details on their injuries were not disclosed.

Authorities said the fixed-wing, single-engine Piper plane went down just moments after it took off from the Blairstown Airport. It ended up in the area of Gwinnup and Sipley roads in the Warren County community of Blairstown Township.

No one on the ground was injured in the incident.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation Saturday.
