Former MN businessman dies in plane that crashed into SUV in Florida

Three people, including a 4-year-old boy in the SUV, were killed in the plane crash.

A former Minnesota business owner was killed when the plane in which he was flying crashed into an SUV, causing fatal injuries to another man in the aircraft and a 4-year-old boy in the vehicle. 

The deadly crash was captured on a Ring doorbell camera that recorded the fiery explosion after the six-seat Beachcraft airplane crashed into an SUV carrying a mother and her boy. 

Grant Hustad Jr., 71, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Yaacof Nahom, 63, of Davie, Florida, were both killed in the plane, while the boy who died was strapped in a car seat on the side of the SUV that the plane struck, according to the Sun-Sentinel. 

The boy's mother, the driver of the SUV, was the only survivor. 

WARNING: The following video is graphic and extremely upsetting

Hustad previously lived in Glenwood, Minnesota, where he owned and operated a farm implement store, according to the West-Central Tribune.  

The NTSB crash report, per the Miami-Herald, says both Hustad and Nahom were certified pilots, though it's unclear which man was flying the plane when it went down in Pembroke Pines just two minutes after takeoff.  

The cause of the crash is under investigation. 

An online fundraiser for the family of the boy killed in the crash has so far raised more than $97,000.
