French air accident investigators say a doctor referred Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz to a psychiatric clinic two weeks before he crashed a plane into the French Alps, killing 150 people.
The BEA investigation agency, in releasing a report Sunday on the March 2015 crash, said multiple doctors who treated Lubitz in the weeks before the crash did not inform authorities of concerns about his mental health.
Because Lubitz didn’t inform anyone of his doctors’ warnings, the BEA said ‘no action could have been taken by the authorities or his employer to prevent him from flying.’
Investigators found that Lubitz intentionally crashed Flight 9525 en route from Barcelona to Duesseldorf.
The BEA investigation is separate from a manslaughter investigation by French prosecutors seeking to determine eventual criminal responsibility for the crash.
