NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Authorities in the Bahamas say a medical evacuation plane crashed as the pilot tried to make a night landing at a small airstrip, killing three people, including a Canadian citizen.

Police say the pilot was trying to land with the light of headlamps from two trucks driven up to the runway. The plane's wing hit one truck and it spewed fuel as it spun into the second, which exploded, killing three people inside. The pilot survived.

All the victims were residents of Mayaguana island. Police did not immediately release the name of the Canadian citizen who died in the accident early Thursday.
