BOGOTA, Colombia – Two people were killed Monday when a Miami-bound cargo plane crashed near the Colombian capital, authorities said.
Madrid city mayor Diego Humberto Sicard said the Boeing 747 fell at about 3:50 a.m. local time. The two people who died lived in a small house on a ranch.
The director of the Madrid hospital said that two U.S. crewmembers were being treated there. Neither appears to be seriously injured.
The mayor said the plane took off from Bogota with a load of flowers and was headed for Miami. The cause of the crash was not immediately known.
