NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

While in normal cruise flight, the engine lost power. The pilot made a forced landing next to a dirt road in a canyon. During the landing, the landing gear folded back and buckled the fuselage. Additional tubular structure members were bent. Post-accident examination revealed that fuel flow was restricted due to a partially obstructed fuel filter.

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

A partial blockage of the fuel filter, causing fuel starvation. A contributing factor was the rough terrain.
