The pilot made a normal approach to the 2,942 foot long and 40 foot wide runway at night, but landed to the left of the runway centerline. The left main gear touched down on the edge of the runway, and the left landing gear landed in a bank of plowed snow. The airplane veered to the left, traveled deeper into the snow, and flipped over. The pilot reported that there were no mechanical deficiencies, and stated that he "messed up" the landing.

Probable Cause: the pilot's failure to maintain proper runway alignment during landing. Factors in the accident were the night lighting and the snow bank.
