Category:Accident
Location:Toledo State Airport - 5S4, Toledo, OR -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Newport, OR
Destination airport:Toledo, OR (5S4)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot reported that the approach and landing were normal, but the airplane veered to the right immediately after touchdown. The pilot said that he attempted to apply left rudder to correct the veer; however, the rudder pedal would not move, and the airplane exited the right side of the runway and struck a hangar. One witness reported that the accident airplane landed “hard and fast” and veered right after it touched down. Another witness stated that the airplane touched down fast, bounced about 5 to 8 feet in the air, wobbled, touched down again, and then veered off the right side of the runway. Postaccident examination of the airplane revealed no evidence of any preexisting mechanical malfunction or failure that would have precluded normal operation.
Probable Cause: The pilot’s failure to maintain directional control of the airplane after landing.
