The airplane pilot and passenger died, local media reported, citing the fire department.

The woman and child who were in the car at the time of the accident were taken to the hospital, where the child later succumbed to his injuries.

The accident occurred in Pembroke Pines, about 25 miles northwest of Miami, and was, by chance, recorded by a surveillance camera.

The video shows the single-engine plane first hitting the vehicle, then continuing to spin before bursting into flames.

"We went out and saw the fire; everything was on fire outside," an eyewitness told the Miami Herald. "It was like a bomb."

The crash occurred shortly after the plane took off from North Perry Airport around 3:00 PM. The cause of the accident remains unclear.
