3.2 Conclusion (translated from Chinese)

The investigation team ultimately concluded that the most likely cause of the incident was the laxity and lack of safety awareness of the flight crew, which was flying at altitude while operating at a complex site. The aircraft was too low and too fast to avoid the obstacle effectively, which eventually caused it to scrape the high-voltage line and crash.
