Overran runway 22 following an aborted takeoff. Ran across 1,000 feet of sandy terrain, through the perimeter fence, over train rails, across a 4-lane highway impacting several moving cars and another fence before coming to a stop. 942 pounds over mtow.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The captain's decision to abort the takeoff at an airspeed above V1, which resulted in a runway overrun. Contributing factors were: the loading of an excessive amout of cargo by the shipper which resulted in an over gross weight airplane, the high density altitude, the separation of tire retread on takeoff roll, and the flight crew's lack of experience in the accident make and model aircraft."
