The tail of an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 hit the runway before it crashed at San Francisco International Airport, South Korea's transportation ministry said Sunday.

"The tail of the Asiana flight hit the runway and the aircraft veered to the left out of the runway," the ministry said in a statement, adding that it was sending a four-member team to inspect the site of the accident.
