It is not confirmed at this time what caused the plane to go down, but Stephen Williams, deputy fire chief for the Danbury Fire Department, says it may have been a pilot error or mechanical problem. These are theories, and it is not certain what happened. Chief Williams says they had a full tank of fuel, however, so that was not the crash cause. You can read the News Times article here
