Three people were injured when the nose gear of a Southwest Airlines 737 collapsed upon landing at LaGuardia Airport Monday.

The FAA says Flight 345, from Nashville, reported possible front landing gear issues before landing.

Then, the plane's nosegear collapsed as the aircraft landed on Runway 4 around 5:45 p.m. ET.

LaGuardia Airport officials confirm that three people were injured. Their conditions are unknown.

The airport remains closed at this time.
