The Citation carried out a visual approach to the Sorocaba Airport. After landing the crew lost control of the aircraft. It overran the runway, went down a drop off and skidded into a street in the Vila Helena quarter. The airplane collided with four houses and three vehicles and ended up in a small field. The crash site elevation was 25 meters lower than the runway elevation. The aircraft was substantially damaged and the pilot was fatally injured.

Sad that the pilot died - RIP.
It's also shocking that the cockpit is in this state, considering the accident happened only 11 days ago.

Fatal aviation accidents are sometimes hard to understand. The cockpit structure looks mostly intact here and survivable as does the other shot of the fuselage.
