The pilot said that, during the landing rollout, the airplane veered to the right and exited the runway. The airplane subsequently encountered a berm and came to rest in an adjacent corn field. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing and fuselage. A postaccident examination revealed that the right main landing gear wheel had separated from the airplane. The components that retained the main wheel had separated from the axle and were not recovered. Visual examination of the bolt attachment hole on the landing gear strut axle did not reveal any damage. The reason for the wheel separation could not be determined.
Probable Cause: Separation of the right main wheel during landing rollout for undetermined reasons.
