NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

During an approach to a 2,000-foot private grass airstrip, the pilot reported that he flew the approach "a little high and fast" and slipped the airplane. The pilot further reported that the airplane touched down about mid-field and he applied brakes, but the airplane overran the runway and impacted trees.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the fuselage and both wings. 

The pilot reported that there were no preimpact mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot landed long and failed to stop before the end of the runway, which resulted in a runway overrun and impact with trees. Contributing to the accident was the pilot's failure to maintain a stabilized approach.
