As soon as the aircraft left the ground, everyone said the aircraft started rocking as it got hit by hail. Then, as you’ll see in the video, there was a loud rumble and the aircraft crashed.

The aircraft first hit the ground with its left wing tearing off the engine and subsequently the other, starting a fire. People trying to escape said the fire made the wing exit doors impassible so everyone scurried out the front and the back and luckily got out.

Initial reports state the pilot tried to abort the takeoff but made the decision too late leaving him no choice but to get his wheels off the ground.
