On January 25, 2016, about 1930 Pacific standard time, a Cessna 210, N7316E, was substantially damaged during a runway overrun at the Lodi Airport (1O3), Lodi, California. The airplane was registered to a private individual and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The private pilot and passenger were not injured. Night visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the local personal flight which originated from 1O3 about 1900.

The pilot reported that after performing a local flight, which included a touch and go landing at a nearby airport, he returned to 1O3 with intent of conducting a full stop landing. Following a normal landing on runway 8, he let the airplane continue to roll out to the end of the runway. As the airplane approached the runway threshold, the pilot applied brakes at an estimated ground speed of about 15 to 20 miles per hour and immediately felt like the airplane was skidding or losing traction. The pilot opined that it was possible that the brakes were locked up and that he applied normal pressure to the rudder pedals in order to actuate the brakes. Despite the pilot's attempts to stop the airplane, it impacted an airport perimeter fence about 495 feet beyond the runway threshold.

Examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that the left horizontal stabilizer was structurally damaged.
