The aircraft appeared to rotate after less than 2000 feet down a 12000 foot runway.
Considering the gust factor, I suspect the density altitude was not calculated.
lifted the gust spun the plane.
The NTSB has been silent.  Let's see what they find as probable cause.

From everything I have read, they never rotated.  The initial NTSB preview of the data recorder and voice recorders showed a rumble noise, the co-pilot stated they were veering off center line, then either pilot or co-pilot called for aborting the takeoff.

The plane was all wheels on ground until it went over the embankment.
