The pilot reported that after the airplane touched down, it veered to the left and departed the runway onto a grassy area. He applied power in an effort to return to the runway; however, the airplane went into a ditch and nosed over, which resulted in substantial damage to the tail section. He stated that gusty wind conditions may have been a factor. The pilot reported no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.
