Narrative:
The accident was caused by starvation of fuel to both engines that resulted in the loss of power (sufficient to sustain flight) and made the aircraft non-flyable. It is apparent that the primary cause of this accident was a malfunction of the fuel systems, brought about by manufacturing defects of the sequencing valve and/or variation from published specifications.
