A pilot had cocaine and alcohol in his system when the plane he was flying crashed in the Bahamas, killing nine people including singer and actress Aaliyah, a doctor testified during a coroner's inquest. Pilot Luis Antonio Morales had cocaine in his urine and traces of alcohol in his stomach at the time of the 2001 crash, pathologist Dr. Giovander Raju testified Tuesday. The autopsy results were already made public earlier this year, and Raju was not required to testify on whether the findings may have contributed to the crash. Investigators also have said they believe the twin-engine Cessna 402B was 700 pounds overloaded when it crashed shortly after takeoff from Marsh Harbor in the Bahamas en route to Florida on Aug. 25, 2001. Two taxi drivers who dropped the group off at Abaco's airport testified Tuesday that they were concerned about the amount of equipment they had with them. Annie Russell and Louise McIntosh had driven Aaliyah around while shooting the video "Rock the Boat," which the 22-year-old singer had just finished at the time of her death. The two said they were concerned the amount of sound and video equipment would be too much. source
