The Electra plane veered off the right side of runway 04L while landing in high winds associated with a thunderstorm. It then struck the raised edge of a taxiway that was under construction, causing the right hand main gear to separate.
At the time of the accident surface wind at touchdown was variable from north to northwest at 35 knots with peak gusts to 40 knots. In addition there was moderate turbulence and heavy rain. The captain had been warned about these conditions prior to and during the approach.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The loss of directional control as a result of the improper technique employed in a crosswind landing in adverse weather conditions."
