On August 7, 2020, about 1036 eastern daylight time, a Cessna P210N, N6300W, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Allendale, South Carolina. The pilot and passenger were seriously injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

Prior to departure, he fueled the airplane with 58 gallons of fuel. The flight was unremarkable, but when the airplane was on short final approach to runway 35 at AQX, the engine experienced a total loss of power. The propeller continued to rotate and the pilot attempted to restart the engine by switching the selected fuel tank but was unsuccessful.
