At 1026 Eastern time, the airplane was destroyed during an in-flight collision with terrain and post-impact fire. Visual conditions prevailed. The pilot sustained fatal injuries. The flight had departed the airport just prior to the accident.

A flight instructor and his student had just completed a landing and throttled up for takeoff when they heard a pilot transmit “Aircraft on [runway] 9, I need the runway.” The flight instructor reported the accident airplane came into view through the rear window of his airplane and was in a 45-degree bank, with the nose pitched down about 15 degrees. The airplane appeared to overshoot the extended runway centerline as it turned final. The airplane then “pitched up suddenly and rolled sharply to [the] left.” The airplane rolled inverted and struck the ground.
