Accident in Haiti: A Quebec man dies

Accident in Haiti: A Quebec man dies

A small business plane has crashed in the city of Carrefour, near the capital Port-au-Prince, killing at least seven people, including a cubester, in Haiti on Wednesday.

The device provided a trip between Port-au-Prince and Jacmel in the south of the country, Carrefour Police Chief Pierre Belamy told AFP on Saturday.

All five passengers on board, including the pilot, were killed.

In the crash, the plane killed a motorbike taxi driver and collided with a truck carrying consumer goods, leaving five people seriously injured, Judge Moise Jean said.

According to MP Paule Robitaille, one of the victims on board was Quebecian Commander-in-Chief Wallace.

All of the injured were taken to hospital.

Prime Minister Ariel Henry said in a tweet that he was “deeply saddened” by the tragedy, addressing “(his) sympathies to the families of the victims.”

Air traffic in Haiti has increased dramatically since last year, making it impossible for any safe road transport to the south of the country due to gang clashes in the Port-au-Prince district of Mardi Gras.
