LOS ANGELES (AP) - Federal investigators say wreckage from the helicopter that crashed last month, killing Kobe Bryant, his daughter and seven others did not show any evidence of engine failure. That's according to a report by the National Transportation Safety Board.

The helicopter crashed into a hillside outside Los Angeles on Jan. 26.

The NTSB is investigating the accident, including any role heavy fog played, and a final report isn’t expected for at least a year.

A witness told the NTSB that the helicopter was flying forward and downward through the fog before it crashed into the hill.
