The crew made an instrument approach in VMC weather to Quito. The aircraft landed too fast (143 knots instead of 123kts) 300m down the runway. The Boeing, named "Santander", overran the runway by 70m and came to rest with the nosegear collapsed.
PROBABLE CAUSE: Pilot misjudged speed and distance on landing and didn't follow the appropriate procedures to activate the emergency brakes.
