NTSB Factual Report

During a local orientation flight, the pilot turned final approach with "a little too much altitude", but the pilot did not perform a go-around. The airplane landed long down the runway, overran the end of the runway and impacted a ditch, which damaged the forward fuselage. The pilot reported no mechanical malfunctions or anomalies with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's improper approach to landing and his failure to perform a go-around, which resulted in a runway overrun.
