Landing in gusty crosswind conditions. After T/D gust from the right side, which caused loss of directional control. Left the runway to the left side into the grass, initiated takeoff and airplane left the ground but touched down on the grass one more time, which caused a speed loss. Due to the speed loss, decided to abort the takeoff but before the aircraft could be brought to a stop it went through a ditch at the airport boundary which caused the front wheel to break off and to stop the idling engine.
