Looks like this one:
N5EQ Flight Tracking and History - FlightAware
Nothing really of note to see on the flight track, maybe some odd speed excursions in the last few minutes.
Wishing those injured a speedy recovery.

One of the occupants, a 52 year old Swiss citizen, has died of his injuries.

70 knots 5 back? If that is airspeed, that is pretty slow for that wing, especially with gusts to 22. I've flown those a fair while ago, but I think 5 back I'd be at minimum 100 before gear and all the flaps. That is definitely not a slow flight airplane.
