According to the pilot, he approached runway 4 once and performed a go-around due to the wind conditions. The second approach to the runway was higher than usual; therefore, the pilot increased the rate of descent in order to land in the crosswind and gusting conditions. The airplane impacted the runway and bounced, then veered off the side of the runway, and came to rest in the reverse direction of travel. The accident sequence resulted in substantial damage to the right wing and fuselage. The pilot reported there were no mechanical anomalies with the airplane. The winds reported at an airport 15 miles south of the accident location, about the time of the accident, were from 330 degrees at 10 knots, gusting to 16 knots.
