Beschrijving:
On the morning of December 9, 2005, the pilot of Emb-110 N790RA ordered fuel for the airplane. While exiting the airplane another pilot informed her that he had heard a "popping noise" coming from one of the engines. The pilot of the accident airplane elected to start the airplane and taxied to a run up area to conduct an engine run up. The fuel truck arrived at the run up area and the pilot elected not to refuel the airplane at that time and continued the run up. No anomalies were noted during the run up and the airplane was taxied back to the ramp and parked. The pilot arrived back at the airport later that day. She did not re-order fuel for the airplane nor did she recall checking the fuel tanks during the preflight inspection of the airplane. The pilot stated she departed Savannah (SAV) and was in cruise flight when she noticed the fuel light on the annunciator panel flickering. A diversion to Orangeburg (OGB) was initiated
During a visual approach to the airport both engines failed. The pilot made a forced landing into the trees about 1/4 mile from the approach end of runway 36.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's inadequate preflight inspection and her failure to refuel the airplane which resulted in total loss of engine power due to fuel exhaustion, and subsequent in-flight collision with trees."
