The pilot said he purchased the airplane 3 days before the accident and was flying it from California to Connecticut. He was landing the airplane to purchase fuel. He said that the wind was variable at 3 to 6 knots, and generally a right crosswind. During touchdown, he overcorrected with rudder control and the airplane ground looped to the right. The left main landing gear failed, and the left wing was bent and wrinkled.
