Détails:
The Lodestar was taxied to the runway, but the pilot had to warm the engines up because of a low number 1 engine oil temperature reading. He set the parking brakes and advanced the number one throttle. When the oil temperature readings were OK, so throttles were advanced to 30 inches manifold pressure and 2250rpm. Normal brakes were used in addition to hold the aircraft. Full power was applied and brakes were released. During takeoff the aircraft drifted left and right until the plane veered off the right side of the runway, heading for a ditch. The pilot tried to clear the ditch. When airborne the left wing dropped and hit the ground. The aircraft yawed and crashed.
