The twin pressurized turboprop airplane veered to the left and departed the runway during landing on runway 19R. Runway 19R was reported to be a 5,102-foot long by 100-foot wide asphalt runway. The airplane came to rest on the grass between runway 13 and taxiway Juliet. The pilot reported that following a normal full-flap landing, the airplane started to veer to the left as soon as the nose wheel tires touched down on the runway. The pilot was not able to compensate for the uncommanded drift as result of the nose wheel steering mechanism. The airplane sustained structural damage to the nose section
