Plane crashes into school

I suppose the press won't be able to use the favourite line "narrowly missing a school" on this occasion.....

The Cessna 355? I guess this is Cessna's new pilotless airplane since there's no word on the pilot, only on the two unfortunate passengers.

It was a Cessna 335 owned by an immigrant from the Dominican Republic with a New Jersey address. He was cited as 'UN INMIGRANTE EN PROGRESO' in a 2017 YouTube video with the plane in the background.

A radio call was made to FXE tower saying that they had a fire in the left engine and were returning to the airport. They were cleared to land any runway but obviously didn't make it.
