Actually, the bird should have been perfectly controllable with one fully functional engine. In fact they were on their best way to a successful emergency landing in that field, when they hit a powerline pole, apparently damaging a wing and resulting in a crash landing and subsequent fire. Without that impact, the engine failure probably would have resulted in just some red faces.
