The plane crashed into a car on a bridge near Hoover Park around 12.50 pm on Saturday. We can see an injured person lying on the sidewalk.

The flight path indicates that the pilot was attempting to land on Collins Street before hitting the bridge and the vehicle.

Footage from the scene shows the plane torn apart on the overpass bridge while a red minibus is destroyed nearby.

A video clip taken by a cyclist shows civilians rushing toward the accident as smoke began to rise from the plane.

Florida residents were seen standing on the outer edges of the bridge as thick black smoke billowed from the small plane as the wrecked plane burned. Smoke can be seen for miles.

The charred remains of the plane remained, with most of its exterior gone. Most of the rest are wings.

Nearby drivers stood outside their cars and saw a public bus and several vehicles stuck on the bridge.

Police said the bridge is closed from Sunny Isles Beach and Bal Harbor. Authorities said they expect significant delays.

Miami-Dade Police announced around 3 pm that Collins Avenue had been completely closed.
