NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that he "ran out of fuel" on final approach. The airplane landing gear became entangled in a power line during the emergency decent and the airplane impacted the ground. The private pilot and his passenger both sustained broken bones. The engine was crushed aft into the firewall, and the right main gear crushed up into the floorboard. The right wing, inboard of the wing tip was wrinkled, and the empennage was wrinkled aft of the right fuselage door. An examination of the airplane's systems revealed no anomalies.

NTSB Probable Cause

the loss of engine power due to fuel exhaustion and the pilot's failure to visually verify the fuel quantity in the fuel tanks prior to departure. Contributing factors include the pilot's inadequate preflight, and the transmission wires.
