The crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 at San Francisco International Airport last July was a result of an over-reliance on automated systems in the plane, National Transportation Safety Board officials said at a hearing today in Washington, D.C.

Asiana Airlines officials say a Boeing 777 that crashed at San Francisco International Airport last July had inadequate warning systems to alert the crew to problems with air speed.
