A Boeing 727-200 overshot the runway of the largest airport in Ghana while landing during heavy rains Saturday, crashing into two vehicles and killing 10 people, according to a report.
The freighter, operated by Nigeria-based Allied Air Cargo, landed in a pool of water before barreling through the airport fence and slamming into a taxi cab and minibus, according to Reuters. The four-member crew survived the crash at Kotoka International Airport in Accra, the capital and largest city in Ghana.
The freighter was reportedly hauling general goods, including textiles, perfumes and clothing, to Cote d'Ivoire from Nigeria. Ghana and Nigeria, along with other sub-Saharan African nations, have attracted significant investment from mulitnationals in recent years, as the region’s middle class grows.
