The one in Rio was due to a problem with an otbd engine's thrust control linkage. The engine (I think it was nbr 4) went into max reverse when the t/r's were deployed on landing. Aircraft departed the runway before the crew recognized the problem. The airplane eventually came to rest a couple hundred yars off the right side of the runway, pointed in some other direction. I don't know about injuries or fatalities, but the airplane broke up and I believe was scrapped.
