Italian air accident pilots under investigation

The Romanian pilot and co-pilot of a plane that veered off a runway after landing in strong winds at Rome airport are under investigation for causing the accident, Italian media reported on Tuesday.

Two people were seriously injured when the ATR 72 turboprop from Romania's Carpatair, which was flying on behalf of Italy's Alitalia, veered into the grass with damaged landing gear on Saturday.

Prosecutors are investigating whether the accident, which triggered scenes of panic and screaming in the cabin, was caused by the weather or pilot error.

The charges being considered are for involuntarily causing an accident and injury, the reports said.

The plane was flying from Pisa in central Italy.

Italian media reported two previous incidents involving Carpatair planes last month.

The airline last year signed a flight-sharing deal with Alitalia that was controversial with unions.
