JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- Authorities in South Africa say a light aircraft crashed in bad weather while trying to land at an airport in the Johannesburg area, killing all three people on board.

Gavin Sayce, CEO of Lanseria airport, said the pilot and two passengers died when the Beechcraft King Air plane crashed off the side of the runway just before 7 a.m. Monday.

Sayce says an investigation is underway. It was raining heavily and visibility was poor at the time of the crash.
