Due to heavy traffic, the flight was diverted from the planned route. The aircraft failed to follow the assigned airway and crashed into a cloud obscured Montseny Mountain while on approach. The deviation from the assigned airway may have been caused by malfunctioning equipment. In addition, the ATC did not realize the aircraft was deviating from its assigned course.
