The first two attempts to takeoff were abandoned due to slow aircraft performance. Takeoff was continued on the 3rd attempt, but both engines lost power upon gear retraction. An attempt was made to make an emergency landing on a highway, but the left wing struck a pole. The aircraft crashed through a fence and struck a highway embankment.

PROBABLE CAUSE: Jet-A fuel had been used when refueling the aircraft, instead of 100LL Avgas.
