We had one crash in our community (south east Georgia) about 20-years ago. For some reason the pilot wandered too close to the guy wires of a TV transmitter tower (very rural area). I was heading home from work and I noticed a single A-10 circling the tower and wondered why, only to find out later via the evening news of the accident. The pilot ejected safely and of course the aircraft was recovered. Word is that it kind of went into a helicopter like spin and pancaked the ground in some newly planted pines and never caught fire. Local volunteer fire fighters said that it mostly remained in tact after intact. Some very tough birds for sure.
