The Embraer EMB-500, N925DR, suffered a runway excursion accident on landing at Orlando International Airport, Florida, USA.

According to the pilot, the airplane completed a stable RNAV/GPS 36L approach to a "smooth" landing at Orlando International Airport (MCO). He had lowered a wing and was using the rudder to compensate for a crosswind, and after touchdown, "only the right brake activated," and the nose went to the right. He then released the brakes, "steered back toward centerline" but the airplane "came aggressively" back to its left. The pilot decided to complete the rollout under control in the grass, rather than risk over-controlling the airplane to remain on the runway because he feared the airplane would roll inverted. The airplane continued off the left side of the runway, struck a sign, dragged and substantially damaged the right wing, before it came to rest upright facing perpendicular to the landing runway.
The wind reported at the time of the accident was from 090° at 12 knots, gusting to 16 knots.

Probable Cause:

Probable Cause: The pilot’s inadvertent application of the right brake during the landing roll, which resulted in a loss of
directional control and a subsequent runway excursion.
