The pilot reported that during the landing roll on a grass airstrip, he did not get the airplane stopped before running off the end of the runway. He said the airplane exited the runway at a slow speed and rolled into a ditch. The right main landing gear bent rearward structurally damaging a fuselage bulkhead. The pilot reported that there were no mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain control of the airplane during the landing roll, which resulted in a runway overrun.
