ACCRA, Ghana (AP) -- An official with Ghana's airport company says that a commission is investigating the circumstances that led to a cargo plane crashing at the country's international airport and then slamming through a fence, killing 10 people.

Doreen Owusu-Fianko, managing director of the company that overseas Ghana's airports, says that they have discounted airport equipment failure as one of the causes, since the airport has the latest navigation equipment.

Officials confirm that 10 people were killed after the plane crossed onto a nearby street, hitting a bus.

Ghana's president visited the four crew members who survived the crash and are receiving treatment at the airport clinic.

Ghana, a nation of more than 25 million in West Africa, has not had a major airplane crash in recent years.
