Accident at 10 Nm N of Fort Assiniboine, AB

He decided to make a precautionary landing on a rural road and after touchdown, in a strong crosswind, the a/c veered off the road into a snowbank. The a/c then tipped on its nose and the damage was described as substantial. The pilot was not injured. OPI - System Safety
