Investigating agency: UZPLN
Narrative:
Aircraft hit high-voltage power lines and crashed. Pilot seriously injured.

Causes:
The cause of the air crash was an erroneous decision that led to a descent below the minimum height for VFR flights and the continuation of a curve low above the ground, which probably led to a deterioration in the pilot's ability to see and avoid overhead electrical wiring in a timely manner and resulting in an impact on overhead power lines and into the ground.
