The pilot of the tailwheel equipped airplane landed on runway 32 and during the rollout, a gust of wind caused the airplane to veer off centerline. The pilot attempted to correct with aileron and rudder; however, the right wing tip contacted the pavement and the right landing gear collapsed, resulting in substantial damage to the right wing and right lower fuselage. Winds recorded near the time of the accident were from 310 degrees at 9 knots, with gusts to 16 knots. The pilot reported no mechanical anomalies with the airplane and further stated "it was purely the crosswind that got away from me."
