The final NTSB report named pilot error as the probable cause for the crash August 15, 2019, saying that the pilot’s approach to the runway was too fast, according to CNN in a piece published Wednesday.(RELATED: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Breaks From NASCAR Owners On Protesting)
“I don’t need to tell ya, we’re really fast,” the co-pilot told the pilot who was flying the plane before landing, according to the report. (RELATED: Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Plane Crashes In Tennessee, All Onboard Unharmed)

“The pilot’s continuation of an unstabilized approach despite recognizing associated cues and the flight crew’s decision not to initiate a go-around before touchdown, which resulted in a bounced landing, a loss of airplane control, a landing gear collapse, and a runway excursion,” the report noted, per NBC Sports.

“Contributing to the accident was the pilot’s failure to deploy the speedbrakes during the initial touchdown, which may have prevented the runway excursion, and the pilot’s attempt to go around after deployment of the thrust reversers,” the report added.

According to the report:
After the fourth touchdown, the right main landing gear collapsed. The plane went off the road and through a 400-foot long area of grass. It went down an embankment, through a creek and a chain-link fence. It continued up an embankment. The plane came to rest about 600 feet beyond the runway at the edge of a four-lane highway.
Several photos have been posted online and have been shared in this piece. TMZ has some close-up photos of the plane’s destruction that can be viewed here.
As previously reported, Dale was traveling in the Cessna with his wife Amy, 15-month-old daughter Isla Rose, the family dog and two pilots when the plane crashed. The race car driver and everyone else on board the aircraft managed to get out relatively unscathed before it caught fire, aside from a few cuts and abrasions.

Jack Martin in concussion protocol due to cowboys OL in ruins
Life is getting faster for you. As the disgusting 2019 season came to an end, there were plenty of reasons for the Dallas Cowboys to be optimistic. It focused a lot on the attacking fort. A year later, Center Travis Frederick returned to play the entire season following an immune system illness. Loyal Collins emerged to the scene of a formal conversation between him and seven-time pro bowler Tyrone Smith over who is the best cop. Jack Martin has formed his sixth straight All-Pro team. 2020 is designed to be a huge year for Cowboys OL.
The Cowboys say RG Jack Martin’s concussion was the only significant injury in the loss to the Cardinals tonight. He has entered the league’s protocol.

In 2015, I used to say that a change in the Cowboys attack line could be easily caught in a sense. Duck Free is your team’s best offensive line; You are in a lot of trouble. But if Duck Free is your team’s worst offensive line, you’ve got a great team. Now, that guy is Connor Williams.
Smith and Collins are done annually. Frederick retired in March. After Martin left, the Cowboys were playing in the 2019 UDFA Brandon Knight left block and Williams left guard. Fourth-round player Tyler Biodas was at the center, playing for senior Joe Looney, who was injured. 2019 Third Round Selection Connor McGovern – who only played two snaps in the OL last week – came to Martin and played next to the 2020 UDF Terence Steel.READ NFL coach 'pissed off' Lynn says George Floyd's remarks aren't enough
To make matters worse, Blake Jarwin, who was prevented from taking charge, missed week 1 with an ACL injury.
The line, of course, was a problem Monday night. QB Andy Dalton was tortured endlessly throughout the night, and this crime was fought to create any downward drama.
Dallas would not have signed on to Game Irving without a free agent, he would have been a swing tag. The club hoped to get him out of the IR, but he got sick before the game. Wat Miller and Mitch Hyatt were in mix during training camp, but injuries ended their season.
