The occupants of the glider, both the captain and the passenger, received minor injuries.
The aircraft was destroyed completely but did not catch on fire.
It is estimated that this accident occurred because the captain attempted a go-around after the Aircraft repeated bounds at landing, and as he failed to take off again, as a result the Aircraft crashed into trees and was destroyed completely.
As for the fact that the Aircraft bounded at landing, it is estimated that this was caused by the captain's inability to operate the air brake properly, as he was sitting in the right seat. Also, the cause of the Aircraft failing to take-off again is estimated to be the captain's inability to properly perform a go-around.
