MOSCOW (KABC) -- A plane crash in Siberia on Monday morning left 32 of 43 people on board dead, Russian emergency officials said. The 11 survivors were hospitalized in serious condition.
Authorities said the twin-engine turboprop operated by UTair crashed shortly after taking off. It was flying from Tyumen to the oil town of Surgut with 39 passengers and four crew. The cause of the crash was not yet clear.
UTair published a list of the passengers and crew, and none of them appeared to be foreigners.
