The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has released the coroner’s report for all of the victims who passed away in the January 26 helicopter crash, including Kobe Bryant and his teenage daughter Gianna.
Nearly four months after the crash, the cause of death for both Kobe and Gianna has been revealed.
The deaths are all considered to be accidental and the passengers died of “blunt trauma,” according to E! News.
It was also determined that the pilot, Ara Zobayan, was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash. TMZ says that the report said, “Toxicological testing did not detect the presence of alcohol or drugs of abuse. Substances tested for include: benzodiazepines, cocaine, fentanyl, heroin, marijuana, opioids, phencyclidine, and amphetamines.”
Vanessa Bryant and family members of other passengers on the helicopter have sued the estate of the pilot and charter company Island Express.
