NTSB Factual Report

According to the pilot, he completed a VOR approach to the airport and then entered the traffic pattern for runway 26. On final approach, he increased the flap setting to 30 degrees and performed a "side slip for cross wind." Upon touchdown, the airplane's nose turned to the right, and he attempted to go around. The airplane continued to turn to the right and exited the runway. The left main and nose landing gears collapsed. The weather observation at the airport recorded about 5 minutes before the accident indicated the wind was from 230 degrees at 6 knots.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during the landing flare/touchdown, resulting in an inadvertent swerve and collapse of the left main and nose landing gears.
