I know some Boeing 737's have had problems with cracks at the wingmoounts for the engine a built in safety system called MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System) that caused couple planes to nose dive into the ground.  Pilots have also had some issues with loss of rudder control. From the looks of the photos and video it looks like the plane may have flown straight into the ground.
It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance.
