Détails:
A Beechcraft 100, N2TX, was substantially damaged upon impact with terrain following a dual loss of engine power near Aurora, Texas. The commercial pilot and three passengers on-board the airplane were seriously injured. Visual meteorological prevailed and an instrument flight plan was filed for the personal flight. The flight departed Oklahoma City-Wiley Post Airport, OK (PWA) approximately 13:50 and was destined for Fort Worth-Meacham Field, TX (FTW).
The pilot added fuel to the airplane prior to departure. While en route to the destination airport, the pilot noted that the fuel gauges indicated that the right main-tank appeared to be almost empty and the left tank appeared half full. The pilot initiated the crossfeed procedure in an effort to supply fuel to both engines from the left main tank. Shortly after beginning the crossfeed procedure, both engines experienced a total loss of power. The pilot notified air traffic control (ATC) and selected a field to perform a forced landing. Prior to touchdown, the right engine produced a surge of power and, in response, the airplane rolled to the left. The surge abruptly ended and the pilot continued the forced landing by lowering landing gear and extending the flaps. The airplane impacted the ground, coming to rest in an open field.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The loss of engine power due to fuel exhaustion as a result of the pilot's inadequate fuel management."
