Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche, N7EY
Approximately 40 metres into the takeoff roll, the aircraft veered to the right, departed the grass runway and entered a field, causing the left main landing gear to detach and the left wing and propeller to be damaged. The pilot believed that the brakes may not have been fully released prior to commencing the takeoff roll.
