NTSB Factual Report

Shortly after takeoff the airplane experienced an engine failure. The pilot made an off airport landing and struck a pole, substantially damaging the left wing. The pilot obtained assistance from personnel at the airport, who delivered approximately 20 gallons of fuel to the scene and helped the pilot move the airplane to a nearby road. The pilot subsequently took off from the road and flew to a different airport about eight miles away from the departure point. Approximately 14 gallons of fuel was drained from the airplane after landing. The airplane was subsequently refueled and flown back to the departure airport.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to ensure adequate fuel onboard for the intended flight.
