Engine damage assessment

I am reading an accident report and I find a discrepancy in the engine damage assessment.

If someone can give me an opinion on the engine damage at impact, it would be very helpful.

I need to know if the engines were developing sufficient torque on impact or were at idle/damaged.


The report can be downloaded from here
