On December 8, 1999, about 1845 Eastern Standard Time, a Cessna 172L, N7565G, was substantially damaged while taxiing at Wayne County Airport (BJJ), Wooster, Ohio. The certificated private pilot, pilot-rated passenger, and one additional passenger were uninjured. Night visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident. No flight plan had been filed for the flight, from Lonesome Pine Airport, Wise, Virginia, to Wooster. The flight was conducted under 14 CFR Part 91.

According to the pilot, the airplane's landing/taxi light burned out on final approach. The pilot made an uneventful landing, then back-taxied to the parking ramp, which had no edge lights. The pilot saw a jet parked on the ramp, and wanted to make sure he stayed clear of the it. "I misjudged the turn," the airplane taxied off the pavement, and into a ditch.
