Officials To Announce Probable Cause of Kobe Bryant's Crash

It’s been over a year since Kobe Bryant, his daughter, Gianna, and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash. On Tuesday, the National Transportation Safety Board will formally announce the probable cause of the accidentat a virtual board meeting that’ll be live-streamed to the public.

Investigators have floated several theories during their investigation. Preliminary findings showed no outward evidence of engine failure. A few months later, NTSB officials started looking into whether the pilot, Ara Zobayan, was disoriented in the fog. There was evidence that Zobayan, who also died in the crash, thought he was ascending over the fog when, in reality, the chopper was just going down.

At this point, it’s unclear if there's new evidence to refute earlier theories. We’ll find out on Tuesday.
