NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that a normal landing was made on runway 17L. The pilot was instructed to cross runway 17R without delay. As he was taxiing, the airplane began to weather vane left into the wind. The pilot tried to correct back to the taxiway with the right rudder but the airplane continued to the left and hit a taxiway light. As the pilot continued to maneuver to the left, the airplane went into a ditch and the tail struck an airport sign.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's inadequate compensation for the wind conditions and failure to maintain directional control during taxi.
