NTSB Prelim: Beech A36

He Attempted To Restart The Engine Several Times, But He Could Not Get Fuel Flow Back

Location: Cleveland, TX Accident Number: CEN22LA059
Date & Time: December 2, 2021, 14:15 Local Registration: N8038Z
Aircraft: Beech A36 Injuries: 3 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On December 2, 2021, about 1415 central standard time, a Beech A36, N8038Z, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Cleveland, Texas. There were no injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that while enroute at 6,000 ft on an instrument flight rules flight plan the airplane engine suddenly lost power. He reported that he was not in the process of changing or manipulating anything at the time of the power loss. The pilot elected to fly toward a nearby airport depicted on his GPS receiver. While gliding toward the airport, he attempted to restart the engine several times, but he could not get fuel flow back even with the fuel pump on. He attempted switching fuel tanks during this time and the airplane engine monitor showed no fuel flow despite restart attempts.

During the descent the airplane went through some clouds and broke out of the clouds about 3,000 ft. The pilot realized that he would not be able to reach the airport he had selected and redirected the airplane toward a nearby highway.

During the landing flare on the highway, the right wing tip struck a road sign. The airplane exited the highway and came to rest nose down in a ditch.
