Category:Accident
Location:Immokalee, FL -   United States of America
Phase: Unknown
Nature:Training
Departure airport:Ft. Lauderdale, FL (FXE)
Destination airport:Immokalee, FL (IMM)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
According to the student pilot, the wind was calm, and shortly after touchdown, the airplane veered to the left. He applied power and began a go-around procedure, which he subsequently aborted, as the airplane continued to veer to the left. The airplane departed the left side of the runway into a grassy area and struck a ditch that ran parallel to the runway, which resulted in substantial damage to the firewall. Postaccident examination of the airplane did not reveal any evidence of a preimpact failure or malfunction that would have precluded normal operation. According to the automated weather observation system located at the airport, around the time of the accident, the wind was consistently a direct left crosswind between 7 and 8 knots.
Probable Cause: The student pilot's failure to maintain directional control during the landing roll.
