    participle

    The plane crashed, killing all 200 people aboard.
    The plane crashed killing all 200 people aboard.


    Is there any difference between these two sentences? What difference does the comma make?

    Re: participle

    I would say the comma makes it grammatical. (The second sentence is not correct.)
