A tourist plane from Germany crashed late Friday at the Toulouse-Blagnac airport in southwest France, killing at least two people and seriously injuring another, officials said.

The Austrian-registered Piper-Cheyenne aircraft carrying four people crashed before reaching a runway at the airport said the prefecture's office.

The condition of the fourth person was not yet known.

Authorities have not yet released the nationalities of those on the plane.

Air traffic at the airport has been disrupted but was expected to resume around midnight. Some 12 flights were directed to other airports.
