THE PILOT STATED THAT DURING THE LANDING ROLL, THE LEFT BRAKE WAS INEFFECTIVE IN PREVENTING THE AIRPLANE FROM SWERVING SHARPLY TO THE RIGHT. THE LEFT MAIN LANDING GEAR COLLAPSED AND THE LEFT WING HIT THE GROUND. HE THOUGHT THE LEFT BRAKE HAD FAILED BECAUSE OF A LOSS OF FLUID. AFTER A BROKEN LINE WAS REPLACED AND THE SYSTEM SERVICED, THE BRAKES OPERATED NORMALLY.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

THE PILOT-IN-COMMAND'S FAILURE TO MAINTAIN DIRECTIONAL CONTROL DURING THE LANDING ROLL. FACTORS RELATING TO THE ACCIDENT WERE THE COLLAPSED LEFT MAIN LANDING GEAR, FAILED LEFT BRAKE, AND THE LOW LEVEL OF HYDRAULIC BRAKE FLUID.
