According to the information provided by the student pilot in his NTSB Pilot/Operator Report, the airplane impacted the taxiway embankment following his loss of directional control prior to touchdown. The pilot reported that he "ballooned" during the flare and applied full power to recover, followed by a second flare. After the second flare the airplane drifted over adjacent weeds and the terrain collision followed as the pilot "steered towards the runway."
