0.5 km from Road 1. The pilot looked for a possible landing site and noticed a gravel road extending out from Road 35. As the ultralight was about to glide across Road 35 on its way to the emergency landing site, its left wing hit a light pole. The ultralight turned 180° and came to rest in the middle of Road 35.
The ITSB concludes that the cause of the accident was that the spark plug replacement was conducted using incorrect information in the engine‘s Operator‘s Manual.
