A pilot witness described the weather as IMC and foggy at the time of the flight, which originated about 15 minutes before the crash. The accident pilot was not instrument rated and no flight plan had been filed. The airport manager said the airport beacon was on and that someone had activated the pilot-controlled runway lights prior to the accident. The aircraft was destroyed by a post-impact fire.
