On June 28, 2013, about 2030 Pacific daylight time, a Chicco Quicksilver Sport II, light sport experimental airplane, N2812, was substantially damaged during a forced landing following a partial loss of engine power near Newbury Park, California. The light sport pilot and his sole passenger sustained serious injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the local flight, which was conducted in accordance with 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91, and a flight plan was not filed. The flight departed the Camarillo Airport (CMA), Camarillo, California, about 1900.

In a post-accident interview with the National Transportation Safety Board investigator-in-charge, the pilot reported that the purpose of the flight was to check the operation of the engine, as it had been missing and running rough on a previous flight. The pilot stated that during the flight the engine began to run rough, and when he could not obtain an increase in power with the throttle and extra electric fuel pump, he elected to make an emergency landing. The pilot added that after landing on uphill sloping terrain, the airplane nosed over and came to rest inverted.

The aircraft wreckage was recovered to a secured facility for further examination.
