On February 15, 2019, at 0900 Pacific standard time, a Cessna 402, N5849C, departed the runway surface during the landing rollout at the Montague Airport-Yreka Rohrer Field (1O5), Montague, California. The pilot was not injured. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the forward fuselage. The airplane was registered to Redding Aero Enterprises and operated by Redding Jet Center under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135, as a United Parcel Service (UPS) flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident and a company flight plan was filed. The flight originated from the Sacramento Mather Airport (MHR), Sacramento, California, about 0700 with an intended destination of 1O5.

According to the operator, the pilot landed on the runway and activated the brakes, however the airplane did not slow down. The pilot initiated an aborted landing but realized there was not enough remaining runway to safely take off, so he reduced the power and initiated the brakes again. The airplane subsequently departed the runway, and the nose landing gear was sheared off in the soft muddy ground before coming to a stop about 125 yards from the end of the runway.
