He said that he landed on a gravel area, and while taxiing came to a puddle, about 40 feet in diameter with broken ice surrounding it. He said he added speed to taxi through it, and about 3 feet from exiting the puddle, the ice around the edge broke off, and "stopped the tires dead." The pilot said the airplane then nosed over. He said there were no known mechanical anomalies with the airplane prior to the accident. He reported that the rudder and top of the wings were damaged during the accident.
