It would appear that a torsion failure shattered the thin hull from the pictures. I am a little amazed there was not a large stiffener, relying on a plastic failure mechanism as a initial look suggests is a lousy idea unless you know the material properties well.

Of course lightness leads to unsafe conditions in high winds.
