Plane from Haiti carrying 3 crashes off DomRep
SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — A small plane that had taken off from Haiti with three people on board has crashed off the north coast of the Dominican Republic.
The Dominican Civil Aviation Authority says those on board included a couple who were US and Canadian citizens. Their names have not been released.
A statement from the aviation authority issued Tuesday said the plane took off from Port-au-Prince on Monday and was headed to the Dominican Republic coastal town of Puerto Plata. The Air Force of the Dominican Republic had located wreckage from the plane and was searching for survivors.
The single-engine Lake LA-250 apparently lost contact with the control tower shortly after 6:00 pm when it was about 4 miles (6 kilometers) from Puerto Plata. The cause of the accident is unknown.
