On November 10, 2001, at approximately 1200 mountain standard time, an Esbenshade Starduster Too SA300 homebuilt airplane, N6925, was destroyed when it impacted a transmission wire, and subsequently struck several trees near Evans, Colorado. The private pilot and his passenger were not injured. The pilot/owner was operating the airplane under Title 14 CFR Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the cross-country flight that originated approximately 20 minutes prior to the accident, and was en route to Boulder, Colorado. The pilot did not file a flight plan.

The pilot said that he descended from 6,500 feet mean sea level for a "scenic flight" along the river (elevation 4,671 feet). He struck a wire and during the subsequent recovery attempt, he impacted several trees. All four wings were bent, the engine separated from its mounts, and the fuselage was wrinkled.
