This is more or less what I guessed from the information at the time. It has taken the Jamaican authorities 5 years to finalize this report???
KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — An investigation into a plane accident almost five years ago at a Jamaican airport has concluded that an American Airlines jet flying in from Miami botched the landing and the flight crew may have been fatigued. On Dec. 22, 2009, an American Airlines plane overshot a rain-drenched runway at the seaside Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston and split apart after plowing through a perimeter fence and skidding across a road. The Boeing 737-823 came to rest on sand dunes and rocks a short distance from the waters of the Caribbean Sea.
