Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The airplane collided with a parked, unoccupied, vehicle while taxiing to the active runway. The pilot said that while taxiing, he noticed a red truck parked on the right side of the taxiway. He maneuvered the airplane so that the nose gear was about 1 foot to the left of the taxiway centerline, and attempted to avoid the vehicle. He estimated that he was taxiing about 7 miles per hour when the right wing contacted the truck's cab and he felt the airplane suddenly veer sharply to the right. The right propeller made contact with the front of the truck, and he applied the brakes. After the airplane came to a complete stop, he shut down both engines. The pilot stated that there were no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane.

Probable Cause: the pilot's inadequate lookout, which resulted in his failure to maintain clearance from the vehicle while taxiing.
