The engine had lost power because of fuel exhaustion after a total elapsed flight time of 3 1/2 hours. It is probable that while manoeuvring for a precautionary landing the engine failed from fuel exhaustion at a point where the pilot was unable to recover control of the aircraft before it impacted the ground.
