NTSB Factual Report

On November 19, 2004, about 1900 central standard time, a Cessna 172N, N737CR, piloted by a commercial pilot, sustained substantial damage on impact with a roadway berm when it exited the departure end of runway 30 (4,098 feet by 75 feet, wet asphalt) at Airlake Airport (LVN), near Lakeville, Minnesota. The business flight was operating under 14 CFR Part 91. Dark night instrument meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident. An instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan was on file and was activated. The pilot reported no injuries. The flight originated from the Waterloo Municipal Airport (ALO), near Waterloo, Iowa, about 1730.

The pilot's accident report stated:

Left ALO IFR [direct] LVN as filed, radar vectors [Minneapolis

Approach] to ILS 29 approach LVN. Maneuvering after

breaking out of overcast at about 700 [feet] through lower broken

layer (500 [feet]?), ended up landing long and skidding off end of

runway, swerving left to avoid runway end lights, entered grass

and continued to skid until striking roadway berm.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot misjudged his distance and speed which resulted in an overrun.. Factors were the wet runway, the grass and the berm.
