A shocking video has emerged showing a plane bursting into flames after crashing into an SUV on a roadway in the US.

According to the Miami Herald, the two onboard the six-seater plane and a young boy in the passengers' seat of the SUV died on the spot, while the boy’s father is in a serious condition at the hospital.

The Beechcraft Bonanza plane crashed near the North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines in Florida, said local Fire Chief Marcellino Rodriguez.

The aircraft crashed shortly after takeoff, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.

A neighbour who caught the crash on her home security camera told CNN it was lucky that she happened to be inside at the time of the crash, as she normally walks her kids every afternoon near the same spot.

"It was very close to my door," Anabel Fernandez said. "We bought this home last year and we see a lot of aircrafts that are so close. Every time we are in the pool in the backyard, the planes are so close it's almost like you can touch them."
