A small plane crashed into a car traveling on a Florida street Monday before skidding and bursting into flames, killing the two people inside the aircraft and a young boy in an SUV, according to reports.
The identities of the victims were not immediately released.
The plane crashed shortly after taking off around 3 p.m. from the North Perry Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement. The cause of the crash has not been determined and is being investigated.
A video taken from a Ring security camera in a nearby home captured the crash. The footage shows the plane crashing nose first into the vehicle before skidding on the street. A ball of fire erupts as the aircraft breaks up into pieces.
The blaze was extinguished by fire personnel and the vehicle driver and passenger were extricated, authorities said. The plane took down a power line before striking the vehicle, officials said.
Pembroke Pines Fire Chief Marcel Rodriguez told reporters that a woman and a child were inside the vehicle at the time of the crash, and both rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital. The child was trapped inside the car and had to be extricated, according to Local 10. The woman is recovering and the child was later pronounced dead, WSVN reported.
