NTSB Factual Report

According to the pilot, during landing on runway 2, the airplane encountered a gust of wind from the right. The pilot applied full right rudder; however, the airplane continued to the left. He then attempted to move his feet to the brakes, during which he inadvertently applied excessive left brake pressure. The airplane traveled off the left side of the runway and struck a sign, resulting in substantial damage to the fuselage. The winds recorded at the airport at the time of the accident were from 020 degrees at 16 gusting to 23 knots. The pilot reported no mechanical anomalies with the airplane. He also reported he had been flying for about 4 hours when the accident occurred.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's inadequate compensation for the crosswind, resulting in a loss of directional control during landing.
