The Poland plane crash that killed 11 people, including parachuting instructors and students, over the weekend has sparked a criminal investigation, The Associated Press reported.

The Piper Navajo plane was carrying 12 people when it crashed and burst into flames in an orchard Saturday just minutes after taking off from Rudniki Airport in southern Poland. One person was also injured. Identities of nine of the victims are pending DNA testing.

Tomasz Ozimek, a spokesman for the prosecutor in Czestochowa, said the criminal investigation aimed to determine whether foul play was involved in the crash.

Ozimek said investigators were also looking at possible plane malfunction, human error, or irregularities in the organization of the training flight.

The incident is Poland's worst civilian plane accident in several years. In 2010, Poland's President Lech Kaczynski and 95 other top officials were killed when the Polish president's plane crashed in Russia.
