NTSB Identification: GAA17CA199
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Monday, April 03, 2017 in Scappoose, OR
Probable Cause Approval Date: 10/31/2017
Aircraft: PIPER PA 22, registration: N7822D
Injuries: 1 Uninjured.

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 student pilot in the tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that he accomplished several takeoffs and landings on the asphalt runway during his solo flight in the pattern. He reported that, during his sixth landing, the airplane swerved to the left and subsequently swerved to the right during the landing roll. He attempted to control the airplane’s direction with rudder pedal application, but he inadvertently applied the toe brakes, and the airplane nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to both left side wing struts, the rudder, and the windscreen.  

The student reported that there were no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation. 

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The student pilot’s loss of directional control during the landing roll and his subsequent inadvertent brake application, which resulted in a nose-over.

Glad to hear pilot wasn't injured. (I witnessed one of those that didn't turn out so well.)
