On May 28, 2017, about 1245 central daylight time, a Mooney M20J airplane, N211ZN, impacted ground objects during a runway excursion on runway 34 at the Lakeway Airpark (3R9), near Lakeway, Texas. The pilot was uninjured. The airplane sustained substantial wing damage on impact with the ground objects. The airplane was registered to Yarbrough Southwest Corp. and was operated by the pilot as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.
