The preliminary report from the NTSB cites surveillance camera footage showing the plane drifting to the left immediately after takeoff, then rolling to the left before the crash.

One witness told investigators that the plane sounded "more quiet than normal" during takeoff, as if the plane did not have sufficient power.

The cockpit voice recorder captured audio from a crew member commenting about a problem with the left engine about 8 seconds before the crash. Several in-cabin audio alarms were also triggered about 3 seconds before the recording stopped.

This is only the preliminary report on the crash. A final report with a ruling on the likely cause will take several months.
