On May 5, 2019, about 1847 Pacific daylight time, a Beech A36 N6684Z, airplane sustained substantial damage during a loss of directional control and subsequent runway excursion, while landing at Reno/Tahoe International Airport (RNO), Reno, Nevada.

The airplane was registered to N6684Z LLC, and operated by the pilot, under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91, as a personal cross-country flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the flight.

According to the pilot, shortly after landing, he lost control of the airplane, and it veered off the runway to the left, despite his right rudder inputs. After the airplane exited runway 25, it continued to an intersecting runway, veered 270° to the right, struck two runway signs, and then came to a stop, facing north on runway 34R. The pilot stated that he was unaware of why he lost directional control of the airplane on the ground.
