DA40 crash Cranfield

Only local chatter on Facebook but reports a DA40 has gone off the runway and the tail has snapped off. Cranfield notam doesn't mention anything.

Diamond Star accident

Can confirm accident occurred Saturday around 9am at the end of 22 and off to starboard. Diamond tail section was off and upside down and one wing appeared detached.

Pure speculation on cause but maybe engine out and strong crosswinds flipped. Alternatively may have veered off and nose wheel dug into mud causing her to flip. Air amublance
was there a long time before leaving.

While Iím sure reporting on here is with the best of intentions, please leave the speculation as this is a public forum.
This will be an unpleasant experience for all those involved. The media will also look for anything which will not then be accurately reported, so I think out of consideration and respect for others it may be appropriate to refrain from commenting at least until due process has had a chance to run its course.

Fatalities: Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 1 Other fatalities: 0
Is not clear to me: Should I understand that there was one occupant fatality? Or, one occupant, but no fatalities? But no one on the ground was injured...

Thatís the way they display injuries/fatalities....One on board and no fatalities.

The headlines donít go into injuries but from the text one (presumably the pilot) taken to hospital.

Yes. I fly DA40 and am very interested in the ways that can go wrong.
