Due to long spot, jumper decided to land in a familiar area outside the normal DZ landing zone. Came in downwind, decided to turn upwind but was too low and impacted the ground in less than two seconds after he initiating the turn. Died some time later due to injuries.

Jumper was current as this was his 235 jump in 2004.

Final report mentions that a blood test taken 4.5 hours after the accident revealed a blood THC level (from Canabis) at 0.010 micromol. At the time of the accident, this value is estimated to have been somewhere between 2 to 20 times higher.
