GUATEMALA CITY – All three people aboard were hurt on Friday when a small aircraft crashed into a parking lot in the country’s capital, Guatemala’s DGAC civil aviation agency said.
The plane suffered a mechanical failure, DGAC director Carlos Velasquez Monje said.
The two men and a woman aboard the plane were taken to a hospital with injuries described as minor. They were on their way to the coastal resort town of Monterrico at the time of the crash.
The plane crushed an empty vehicle on impact.
Traffic in the busy downtown area of Guatemala City was disrupted due to street closures following the crash.
