On January 14, 2017 about 1400 mountain standard time, a Cessna T210M, N6366B, sustained substantial damage during a runway excursion and subsequent noseover, after landing on runway 17 at the Buckeye Municipal Airport (BXK), Buckeye, Arizona. The private pilot was the sole person on board and was seriously injured. The aircraft was registered to Six Six Bravo Inc, and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight; no flight plan was filed for the local flight. The flight originated from BXK at an unknown time.

According to a family member, the pilot stated that the airplane veered to the left during landing roll, and he used right controls to compensate. He further stated that he collided with an object that resulted in the noseover.

A witness located at the airport heard the airplane performing touch-and-goes prior to the accident, but did not see the accident sequence. The witness stated there were tire marks veering left from the runway centerline, about 1,400 feet from the approach end. The tire marks continued about 500 feet before entering the runway safety area, crossing over taxiway D, and reentering the runway safety area on the other side where the airplane came to rest inverted.

The wreckage was relocated to a secure facility for further examination.
