Four people were killed when a small plane crashed over the weekend in northwestern Mexico, Sinaloa state Attorney General’s Office spokesmen told Efe.
The cause of Sunday’s accident is under investigation, but pilot error may be to blame, the AG’s office spokesmen said.
The Cessna 210 took off early Sunday from the international airport in Culiacan and landed in the town of La Noria an hour later.
The aircraft left the town about 60 minutes later and went down in a cornfield.
The victims - two men and two women - were killed instantly, officials said, adding that the plane burst into flames on impact.
The male victims were identified as pilot Aaron Meza Martin del Campo, 21, and co-pilot Fortunato Ramirez Perez, 25.
The two women have not been identified and everything aboard the plane burned, officials said.
