SANTO DOMINGO.- A small plane with four people and an undetermined amount of drug crashed yesterday at dawn on a mountain in Altagracia, Pedernales (southwest), the National Drugs Control Agency (DNCD) last night.
The authorities tracked it until it disappeared from radar, and blame the bad weather for the crash, said DNCD spokesman Roberto Lebrón.
The country of origin of the plane, consumed by fire, is unknown although most of those craft come from South America.
Lebrón said of the occupants only one could be identified.
Forensics and prosecutors will go to the place today, where the two bundles of the drug remains guarded by the DNCD.
