The flight apparently proceeded normally until late final approach when the pilot initiated a go-around because of a vehicle on the airstrip. The aircraft rolled and yawed left, descended steeply and crashed onto a tidal flat.

Probable Cause:

1. The pilot initiated a go-around from final approach because of a vehicle on the airstrip.
2. The left propeller showed little evidence of rotation damage. The reason for a possible loss of left engine power could not be determined.
3. For reasons that could not be established, the pilot lost control of the aircraft at a low height.
