Location:Yamhill, OR -   United States of America

Investigating agency: NTSB
After touching down on the main landing gear the airplane began to veer to the left on the wet runway. In an attempt to correct back to the right the pilot applied right rudder; however, this was not effective. The aircraft departed the left side of the runway, went over an embankment, nosed over, and came to rest in an inverted position. An examination of the airplane systems revealed no anomalies. Winds were reported to be variable at 2 miles per hours.

Probable Cause: The failure of the pilot to maintain directional control of the airplane during the landing roll resulting in a nose over. Factors contributing to the accident included the wet runway and the embankment.
