Here is the cause of the 'accident':

The Emirates plane had aborted its landing seconds before crashing into the runway. The reports reveal that the plane had been on its final approach to the airport when it aborted its landing. It was attempting for the second landing, but instead, the plane touched down on the highway and burst into flames.

The Aviation expert, Anthony Davis says:

"It is good that the crew got everybody off the plane but a Boeing 777 has been written off. This just should not happen. It looks to me like this is an issue of not very good airmanship."

Somebody recorded the incident, watch here.
