The video shows emergency workers sawing away at the fuselage, which appears to have split in half, following the collision and resulting crash. Debris is strewn around amid the overnight commotion.

Investigators are at the scene examining evidence, taking fuel samples and talking to staffers.

Two main theories as to the cause are being considered at this time – an air traffic control error and the actions of the snowplow driver.

It has been determined at this time that “the driver of the snowplow was under the influence of alcohol,” spokesman of Russia’s Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told the reporters on Tuesday.
