On May 28, 2022, about 1202 eastern daylight time, a Beech 58, N120PA, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Perry, Georgia. The private pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that he was completing a short cross-country flight. While on a downwind leg of the airport traffic pattern at the destination airport, the pilot extended the landing gear. The subsequent touchdown was normal; however, the main landing gear collapsed during rollout. The airplane veered right and came to rest upright off the right side of the runway.

Examination of the wreckage by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed substantial damage to the right wing. The inspector planned to further examine the landing gear system with the assistance of a mechanic.
