NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The pilot reported that during the landing roll, he thought he "had blown the left tire" followed by the airplane settling onto its left side a second or two later. The airplane veered to the left and exited the runway, subsequently coming to rest upright adjacent to the runway. Post accident examination of the landing gear revealed that the gear warning horn was inoperative due to a disconnected cable between the throttle switch and the warning horn. Further examination, to include functionality testing of the landing gear, revealed no additional anomalies that would have prevented the gear from extending to the down and locked position.

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

The collapse of the landing gear during landing rollout for undetermined reasons.
