That plane crashed due to the strong effect of gravity.

Magomed Tolboyev, a highly decorated Russian test pilot, said on Rossiya television that it wasn't immediately clear why the crew was unable to land on their first try in good weather, saying it could be linked to a failure of some of the plane's systems or a crew error.
I don't know much about aviation, but it's hard to imagine what caused the plane to crash so vertically.

The most likely scenario is that the pilot stalled the aircraft which if not quickly recovered, will put you into a nose down attitude.  Now, whether this was due to mechanical failure, pilot error, or both will be up to the investigators.  The FDR and CVR will likely tell what happened.

To stall a modern commercial airliner, even a non-fly-by-wire type like the 737-500, it difficult.  There are several safety systems designed to warn the pilot he is flying too slow.  The last lines of defense are the stick shaker which vibrates the control column as a stall warning.  The second is a stick pusher which will actually drive the column forward to physically push the aircraft out of the stall position.  However, both can be overridden by the crew if there is a malfunction causing a false stick shaker or pusher.

some people may consider a video clip of a 737 nose first straight into the ground dramatic. YMMV
