WASHINGTON (AP) — Pilot error and confusion. That's what federal accident investigators have ruled caused Asiana Flight 214 to crash last year at San Francisco International Airport, which resulted in the deaths of three people.
Investigators at the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) also found the complexity of the Boeing 777's auto-throttle and pilot training as contributing to the crash that left three passengers dead and injured more than 200 of the 307 on board.
The Asiana flight crashed at San Francisco International Airport last July 6. A 16-year-old Chinese girl was killed during the crash, and some officials believe another 16-year-old girl was killed on the runway when she was run over by a responding emergency vehicle. The third victim, a 15-year-old girl, later died in a hospital from injuries sustained during the crash.
