An Envoy Embraer ERJ-145, registration N674RJ performing flight AA-4194/MQ-4194 from Miami,FL (USA) to Freeport (Bahamas) with 25 passengers and 3 crew, landed on Freeport's runway 06 at 11:56L (15:56Z) but veered right off the runway and came to a stop on soft ground with both main gear struts collapsed after complering a near 180 degrees turn heading against landing direction. Two passengers received minor injuries.

Bahamas' AAIA have opened an investigation. Preliminary information suggests a landing gear malfunction caused the runway excursion.

The airline reported later that the aircraft had experienced an issue with the main landing gear.

On Jun 11th 2021 the AAIA released their preliminary report stating:

According to the crew’s statement post-accident, the flight was uneventful up until the point just after landing. The crew reported that the approach was stable, contact was made with the runway and immediately after touchdown they both experienced a sudden braking of the aircraft, although no control inputs were being made. Subsequently, there was a rapid deceleration of the aircraft followed by a skidding action. The pilot in command (who was the pilot flying on this leg of the flight) was unsuccessful in his attempts to stabilize and control the aircraft as it continued down the runway, eventually veering off the centerline, and coming to a stop off the right runway shoulder. During the excursion sequence both main gears collapsed. The tail section of the aircraft was the most exposed to the active runway as it came to rest approximately 15 ft. from the runway’s edge.
