Narrative:
After a crop spraying flight the AgTruck returned to the airstrip. During approach a go around was executed in order to ensure that the landing strip is clear, on the second approach and after touchdown a motor cycle was seen by the pilot heading towards the aircraft and suddenly changed his heading in a crossing course, accordingly the pilot slowed down the aircraft, using heavy braking. He steered the aircraft to the left for the purpose of avoiding hitting the driver of the motor cycle, subsequently the aircraft veered to the left, the left wingtip hit the trees that are located beside the water channel at the edge of the strip, the aircraft turned 180 degrees and rested on the trees, heading 155.

1 Failure in protecting and securing the airstrip during take off and landing.
