Around the same time, a different commercial pilot had landed in Auburn and made note of the decaying weather conditions. That other pilot reportedly expected to hear that Garcia-Sainz either missed the approach or had to divert back to Placerville due to the weather.

Radar then went onto show Garcia-Sainz descending to about 25 above round on its landing path about three miles before Auburn Airport. The plane then struck some power lines and ended up crashing onto the roof a home.
