Panama plane crash kills American, passenger

A Panamanian police official says a small plane piloted by a U.S. citizen has crashed about 50 miles west of the capital of Panama City, killing both people on board.

National police official Rigoberto Dominguez said the Saturday night accident near the town of Chame claimed the lives of pilot Monty Polo and Panamanian passenger Josue Cedeno. Investigators have not determined a cause for the accident.

Dominguez said the plane had taken off from the airport in Chame.
