On Tuesday evening, a plane carrying over 100 people from the Dominican Republic crash-landed at Miami International Airport (MIA).

Local news WSVN reports Red Air Flight 203's landing gear collapsed upon landing at MIA around 1730 ET. Here's the moment the plane crashed: 

WSVN said 126 people and 11 crew members were on board when the plane collided with a communications/radar tower on the ground and skidded off the runway, instantly bursting into flames. 

Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue (MDFR) tweeted they arrived at the scene and quickly "placed the fire under control." 

"All souls on board have been assessed for injuries. A total of 3 patients have been transported to local area hospitals," MDFR said. 

An airport spokesperson said multiple flights had been delayed, and two of the airport's four runways were closed.
