Local Tshikapa territory administrator Jean-Paul Kuzo tells the United Nations-backed Radio Okapi that two people survived and are being treated at Kamako General Hospital. Radio Okapi cites witnesses saying at least four people died.
Kuzo says teams have been dispatched to the scene to extinguish a fire caused by the crash.
