The aircraft veered off runway 14 on landing, crossed a ditch and collided with a concrete ramp. It appeared that the no. 1 engine throttle cable had broken, making it impossible for the flight crew to control engine power. The engine had accelerated to an unusually high level of (forward) thrust (above takeoff power).
