Per NTSB, CVR data indicates problem with left engine and cockpit confusion. 3 audible "Bank Angle" warnings were heard just before recording ended.
Things happen so, so, fast when they go wrong. BY the grace of God, I survived my big moments in flying.

There is information that the left prop had previously suffered a prop strike. Also the same source said the gearbox was not torn down. If that is the case and the gearbox failed then the core would continue to run and no power would be produced. The auto feather wouldn’t work because there would be no engine failure. Also the rudder boost wouldn’t sense a engine failure. I challenge you or any other pilot here to be able to recover from that. (Btw I have pics of the engine). What we need here is less speculation and more compassion. The other thing most don’t consider is something even more common and that is a engine runaway, where both engines are operating but the fuel control feeds almost unlimited fuel to one engine. I’ve seen that twice.
I pray for the people and families of those on board. Josiah, your comments are extremely unprofessional and show your ignorance.You weren't in the cockpit, you don't know what happened. It's comical to hear you compare this to a loss of an engine on a jet. Having only 15000+ hours commercial, all A/C react differently. I've flown A/C that you lose an engine you have seconds to get almost full opposite rudder and lower wing. My point, don't condem others when you have no fr*"" clue as to what happened in the cockpit. If it is determined pilot error then that's what it is. If it's isn't then that's what it is.
Thank you Scott. That needed to be said.
Most likely got below Vmc.
