A Let L-410 turboprop, operated by TAC Colombia sustained substantial damage in a runway excursion accident at Capurganá Airport (CPB), Colombia. One occupant sustained minor injuries.
The airplane departed Medellín-Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport (EOH) at 16:10 on a non-scheduled passenger flight to Capurganá and Rionegro, Colombia. The flight to Capurganá was uneventful and the crew were cleared for a landing on runway 03.
After touchdown the airplane began to veer to the left. The pilot used manual steering and adjusted engine power, but he was not able to correct this. The airplane went off the side of the runway and collided with the airport perimeter fence.
