Investigators probing the cause of a small plane crash in the Bahamas that killed a prominent Christian minister and eight others say it was likely caused by bad decisions by the crew during stormy weather.

A Learjet carrying the Rev. Myles Munroe and members of his Bahamas Faith Ministries crashed Nov. 9 after striking a shipping crane as it attempted to land in Grand Bahama. The crash killed everyone on board.

On Sunday, the islands' civil aviation department said it had concluded its probe into the crash. Investigators found "poor decision making of the crew" as they attempted to descend without seeing the runway was the probable cause.

The jet was trying to land during heavy rain and reduced visibility as a storm front passed over the area.
