According to the pilot, he landed on runway 11, a 2,000-foot long by 100 foot-wide turf runway. He stated that the runway was wet, and as he applied the brakes after touchdown, the Piper PA-28-140 yawed sharply to the right and started to slide. The pilot added power and "regained directional control," however the airplane continued off the end of the runway, impacted a fence, and came to rest in a ditch. A witness reported that the airplane "landed long on the wet grass runway." Examination of the airplane revealed no mechanical deficiencies. Weather reported at an airport 6 miles to the north at 1656, included wind from 180 degrees at 14 knots, visibility 4 miles, light rain and mist.
