Circumstances:
On final approach to runway 29 in bad weather conditions, the commuter hit approach lights and the right main landing gear was torn off. Few seconds later, the aircraft crashed short of runway and was damaged beyond repair. All 12 occupants were slightly injured. It seems that weather conditions deteriorated compare to the briefing before depature and gusty winds were encountered on the final portion of flight.
