On May 26, 2019, about 1430 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna 150F, N8746S, collided with a tree while on approach to the Garberville Airport, California. The private pilot, the sole occupant, was seriously injured; the airplane sustained substantial damage. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The personal flight originated from Garberville Airport, Garberville, California about 1415. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed.
The purpose of the flight was for the pilot to perform touch-and-go practice takeoffs and landings. The pilot completed one landing and was departing from runway 36. After reaching about 200 feet above ground level (agl), the engine experienced a loss of power. The pilot banked the airplane to the east (right) in an attempt to make an emergency landing on the river gravel/sandbar. The airplane impacted a tree and descended through the tree canopy. The pilot climbed out of the wreckage under his own power and hiked to the road.
