FAA records indicate the pilot of the Skyhawk lost control "for unknown reasons" during the takeoff-climb phase of the flight. The pilot was not injured in the accident, but the aircraft was substantially damaged.

The 172 is registered to Helicopter Structural and Maintenance Inc of Lutz, FL DBA Tampa North Aero Services. Television station WFTS in Tampa reports that witnesses said the airplane seemed to skid off the runway on takeoff, and impacted two cars at a nearby business. There was reportedly no fire or fuel leakage from the accident.
