The Cessna Caravan carried cancelled bank checks to Buffalo and was topped off with Jet A fuel and loaded with 714 pounds of cargo. The pilot started the airplane's engine about 06:40. The airplane taxied to the de-icing ramp and its wings and tail were de-iced with about 160 gallons of Type I de-icing fluid at 06:44. A witness reported that the propeller did not require de-icing. The airplane received its takeoff clearance at 06:48 and departed Columbus (LCK) at 06:50. Radar track data indicated that the airplane climbed to about 1,100 feet mean sea level (msl) and was in a left turn with a ground speed of about 109 knots prior to descending and impacting the terrain. The airplane impacted terrain on an approximate heading of 120 degrees. The debris field was about 592 feet long and 100 feet wide.
