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.

The pilot reported that the airplane bounced twice during landing. After the second bounce, the pilot executed an aborted landing. He stated that during the aborted landing, he was concerned that the airplane would not clear obstacles at the end of the runway and elected to land the airplane on the remaining runway. The airplane went off the end of the runway, through a fence, and onto a road. The airplane's right main landing gear was separated and the right wing sustained substantial damage. The pilot listed no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions of the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. The pilot commented in his report that an earlier decision to execute the aborted landing may have prevented the accident.

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

The pilot's delay in executing the aborted landing, which resulted in a runway excursion.
