Video captured the moment a plane careened off the runway in Russia and smashed into a highway, killing five crew members and spilling debris across the roadway.

The deadly accident happened Saturday in Moscow, and investigators are examining flight recorders and other evidence to try to determine the cause of the airliner crash.

The Tu-204 belonging to Russian airline Red Wings was carrying eight people, all of them crew members, when it ran off the runway while landing at Vnukovo Airport. It went partly into an adjacent highway, broke into pieces and caught fire.
