MOSCOW, April 2 (Itar-Tass) — Malfunction and pilot’s error are considered as priority causes of the crash of an ATR-72 passenger plane outside Tyumen early on Monday, spokesman for the Russian Investigation Committee Vladimir Markin has told Itar-Tass.
“Malfunction and pilot’s error are considered at the moment as priority versions,” the spokesman said. Thus, investigators have no reasons so far to believe weather conditions could have been caused the crash.
According to updated reports of the Russian Ministry for Emergencies Situations’ regional department, 31 people were killed in the crash of an ATR-72 passenger plane early on Monday, and 12 were injured.
“As of 10 am, Moscow time, 12 people were injured and 31 were killed,” a source working at the site reported at an EMERCOM session. Earlier reports put the death toll at 32, and said 11 survived.
