Oct. 19, Concord, Calif. / Beech Super King Air


At 15:38 Pacific time, a Beech BE-300 overran the runway and struck an automobile at Buchanan Field during an aborted takeoff. The pilot was not injured but the driver of the car was seriously injured. The pilot reported beginning his takeoff run when he noted the airspeed indicator reading zero. He aborted the takeoff, put the power levers to reverse and applied the brakes, but the airplane skidded off the end of the runway, through a chain link perimeter fence, and struck an automobile that was traveling on the perimeter road.
