Location:Greensburg, IN -   United States of America
Phase: Unknown
Nature:Executive
Departure airport:Sparta, TN (SRB)
Destination airport:Greensburg, IN (I34)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The private pilot was approaching the airport to land during a cross-country flight. During the landing approach, the pilot noticed that the airplane would bank to the left at low speeds but that the bank resolved at higher airspeeds. As the airplane slowed on final approach, it banked left and subsequently impacted a field left of the runway. Postaccident examination of the airplane flight control system confirmed flight control continuity, and no anomalies were noted that would have precluded normal operation of the airplane.

Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain control during landing, which resulted in an impact with terrain.
