I agree with the analysis of Machinbird, this looks like a shallow angle, relatively low speed crash-landing that went wrong in the final phases. Whether the aircraft was under or out of control at time of ground contact will be a key question, recorders should provide a quick answer on that. In any case, the wreckage path together with the ROD info available pretty much rules out an out of control free-fall type scenario.
