According to the pilot, he had completed his preflight inspection and run-up successfully. He stated that during the ground run, "the aircraft rotated then settled back on the runway. The takeoff was aborted and the aircraft exited the end of the runway."
According to the FAA, the pilot was taking off on runway 27 that is 2000 feet long. The pilot reported to the FAA that he did not have enough airspeed, so he aborted the takeoff. The airplane touched down 2/3 down the runway, veered to the left, and collided with the runway lights. The pilot stated that this was his first takeoff at this airport with a passenger, and he did not use any flaps. The pilot reported that there was no mechanical malfunction and the accident could have been prevented if the runway was longer, and a shortfield takeoff was executed.
