NTSB Factual Report

According to the pilot of the Cessna 152, he was performing touch and go landings in the airport traffic pattern at night. After several landings, and while on the downwind leg of the traffic pattern, the pilot noticed a small rain cloud over the airport. He then "hurried" his approach to the left base, and subsequently struck several tree tops, damaging the wings. The pilot then turned onto the final leg of the approach before landing "hard" and resulting in damage to the nose landing gear.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain adequate clearance from trees during the approach.
