The aircraft was estimated to have been in an autorotation and struck the ground in an upright manner at high speed. The blades struck the ground and dug into a rice paddy causing dislodging of the transmission and a portion of the rotor blade to land left and forward of the line of the wreckage. The aircraft struck the ground with the right side down, began to fly apart, roll, caught fire and finally came to rest inverted 140 to 160 meters from the point of initial contact.
