Several Miami Beach and Miami police officers are being hailed as heroes for helping rescue a man from a fiery car crash.
The incident occurred Friday at NE 12th Place and South Venetian Way, according to CBS Miami.
Miami Police Commander Freddie Cruz said the vehicle was “traveling at a high rate of speed in an eastbound direction toward the beach.”
“The driver lost control, hit the median, hit some trees, continued eastbound through the backyard of a home, over the pool, through the side of the home and finally came to rest in the front where the vehicle was engulfed in flames,” he continued.
