A FLORIDA mom and her child are left in critical condition after a small plane crashed into their car in a south Florida neighborhood that left the two passengers on board dead.
Shocking footage shows the moment the Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft crashed onto a Pembroke Pines street and the fiery blaze that came after the plane skidded into a car with a mother and her child inside.
Surveillance video from a Ring doorbell shows a SUV driving down a street near the North Perry Airport when a plane suddenly nosedives and crashes into the moving car, leaving behind it a ball of fire as the plane skids to a stop.
The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating the cause of the crash, which killed the two passengers on board the small plane and forced the hospitalization of the mom and child, who are listed in critical condition.
Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration said the plane was forced to do an about-face back towards North Perry Airport shortly after takeoff at about 3PM Monday.
“We heard like a bomb, like a tremendous noise and everything was on fire and it dived into a car,” said Anabel Fernandez, whose doorbell caught the video.

“I live right here. I walk with my babies every day,” she told CBS.” The plane could have got us all. I am in shock.”
Saleh Elshaer called 911 after hearing the crash down the block.
“All I see is like some large black smoke and like a huge fire coming right there from a fence,” he said, before realizing it was a plane crash.
