Been many professional pilots make stupid fatal mistakes. As a pilot/owner, I resent any rush to judgment to lame a pilot because he owns the plane. Wanna talk about Buffalo a couple years ago? Payne Stewart? How bout Senator in Minnesota? All dead.. All professional pilots.
There is a lesson to be learned from any mishap. Here it is to know the weather better than ATC, and use the word "unable" if the vector isn't safe.
Most. Of all, set it down and sit it out. What's one night in a hotel?
