On July 25, 2006, about 1030 eastern daylight time, a wheel-equipped Cessna 150F airplane, N8896G, sustained substantial damage during the landing flare/touchdown on a roadway, about 7 miles south-southwest of Palatka, Florida. The airplane was being operated by the pilot as a visual flight rules (VFR) local area business flight under Title 14, CFR Part 91, when the accident occurred. The commercial certificated pilot, the sole occupant, received minor injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The flight originated from the pilot's personal airstrip in Satsuma, Florida, about 1020, and no flight plan was filed.

During a telephone conversation with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator-in-charge (IIC), on July 27, a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector from the Orlando Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), Orlando, Florida, reported that the pilot was landing on an asphalt road, near the Rodeheaven Boy's Ranch, Palatka. The inspector said the airplane stalled during the landing flare, hit the roadway with the nose wheel, and collapsed the nose landing gear. The airplane then veered off the roadway and nosed over. The inspector indicated the pilot holds an FAA commercial pilot certificate, a flight instructor certificate, and an airframe and powerplant certificate, and was flying to the ranch to work on another airplane.

The pilot did not submit a Pilot/Operator Aircraft Accident Report, (NTSB Form 6120.1/2) to any NTSB office.
