NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

The commercial pilot reported that, while taxiing the airplane to the runway for departure, the airplane suddenly veered right. The pilot attempted to correct the right turn by applying the left brake; however, the attempt was unsuccessful, and the airplane subsequently exited the taxiway, entered a drainage ditch, and then came to rest upright; the left horizontal stabilizer was bent. Postaccident examination of the airplane revealed no mechanical malfunctions or failures with the landing gear brake and nosewheel steering system that would have precluded normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The loss of directional control while taxiing for reasons that could not be determined because postaccident examination of the airplane revealed no mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation.

The National Transportation Safety Board did not travel to the scene of this accident.
