January 6, 2010, Auburn, Ala., Piper PA-32R-301T


At 1646 Central standard time, the airplane was substantially damaged during a runway excursion after landing. The private pilot was not injured. Visual conditions prevailed.

The pilot later stated he applied the brakes to slow the airplane for a left turn off the runway after landing. Instead, the airplane began a turn to the right, which could not be corrected with left brake. The airplane departed the right side of the runway, the left main landing gear collapsed, and the airplane came to rest upright on the grass apron. The pilot had surrendered his certificate to the FAA a month prior to the accident.
