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.

The pilot reported that during landing she slowed the airplane's rate of decent to allow a touchdown after the runway intersection because of a slight surface rise that had caused bumpy landings in the past. She further reported that during touchdown the airplane landed hard and bounced about four feet into the air. She then added full power to abort the landing but was unable to regain airspeed and the airplane veered off the runway centerline to the left. The airplane collided with a security fence and airport rental cars sustaining substantial damage to both wings and fuselage. 

The pilot reported that there were no pre impact 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's failure to maintain an appropriate descent rate during landing, which resulted in a hard landing, followed by a loss of directional control, runway excursion, and an impact with a security fence and vehicles during the subsequent attempt to abort the landing.
