HIALEAH GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews took a man to the hospital after, officials said, a car and a semi-truck collided in Hialeah Gardens, early Saturday morning.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the crash in the area of Northwest 105th Way and Okeechobee Road, at around 4 a.m. First responders found the mangled vehicle trapped underneath the truck.
Crews used the jaws of life to free the car’s driver by removing the vehicle’s roof and door. “It was a little bit complicated due to the entanglement of both vehicles. The one vehicle was way underneath the other one,” said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Rogelio Vandamas.
The man was then airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in unknown condition.
Traffic was shut down near the scene of the crash in order for crews to land the helicopter.
