Aviation Accident Final Report - National Transportation Safety Board: https://app.ntsb.gov/pdf 

NTSB Identification: GAA17CA253
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Monday, May 01, 2017 in Lakewood, NJ
Probable Cause Approval Date: 11/14/2017
Aircraft: CIRRUS SR20, registration: N68VY
Injuries: 2 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 reported that, during crosswind landing conditions, the airplane landed hard and subsequently bounced. He added that he initiated a go-around, and then the flight instructor took the flight controls. 

The flight instructor reported that, after the bounce, the airplane “began to roll to the left in a manner similar to that of an uncoordinated stall.” He added that he attempted to regain control of the airplane but was unsuccessful. The airplane rolled right, and the right wing impacted the ground. 
The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings. 

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

The automated weather observation station located about 7 miles north of the airport reported that, about 1 minute before the accident, the wind was from 150° at 11 knots. The airplane landed on runway 24.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The student pilot’s failure to adequately compensate for crosswind conditions during a go-around and the flight instructor’s delayed remedial action.
