A Beechcraft 99 suffered a runway excursion after landing on runway 12 at Black Point, Bahamas.
On touchdown on the area preceding the useable portion of runway 11 at Black Point, the right main gear entered an area approximately 1-3 inches in depth. It subsequently struck an exposed section of asphalt (46 mm thick) on the unusable portion of the beginning of the runway.
Given the speed of the aircraft at the time of the touch down the right main landing gear collapsed after striking the exposed surface. The disabled aircraft traveled an additional distance of approximately 1,527 ft down the runway before exiting the runway and coming to a stop approximately 20 feet in bushes lining the side of the runway.

The aircraft sustained damages to the right wing, trailing and leading edges, right propeller, right main gear and fuselage. There were no injuries reported.
