NTSB Factual Report

According to a statement by the pilot, he was landing on runway 19. During the landing roll, "a sudden gust of wind from the left (east) lifted the wing [and] blew the airplane off the runway to the right." The right landing gear sheared off and the airplane slid through a ditch and up an embankment, coming to a stop approximately 60 feet to the right side of the runway. The airplane's vertical stabilizer and right horizontal stabilizer were bent and the fuselage was buckled. The pilot reported no mechanical anomalies prior to the accident. The reported winds at Tucumcari, New Mexico, 53 nautical miles east of the accident site, at 1153 mountain daylight time, were 190 degrees at 14 gusting to 18 knots.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing. A contributing factor was the crosswind.
