MIAMI (WSVN) - A man was killed and a woman was taken to the hospital following a fiery overnight wreck in Miami involving a luxury sports car.
City of Miami Police and Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of the crash along Northeast 82nd Street, near First Avenue, early Friday morning.
Miami Fire Rescue said the victims were inside a blue Lamborghini that hit a pole before it caught fire at around 1:15 a.m.
Ring doorbell video captured the moment of impact. Sparks flew as the car burst into flames and the power line came down.
Investigators said the vehicle crashed through a fence before it came to a stop in front of an apartment building.
A man who lives at the apartment building said residents quickly walked out because they were concerned the flames would spread.
“We were asleep, so when we heard the crash, everybody just got out,” he said. “Everybody just, you know, got across the street and police came.”
7News received video that showed the vehicle on fire.
The man was pronounced dead on the scene. He was later identified as 23-year-old Mohammad Khan.
Paramedics transported the woman to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in unknown condition.
The apartment building resident said a neighbor saved the woman from the burning car.
“Everybody came out once we heard the accident, so somebody pulled her from that side because the engine was on fire,” he said.
Gates around homes could be seen smashed, and a tree was left charred. Debris lay scattered on the sidewalk.
This is the third fiery crash in the area in just over a month.
On May 6, a woman died after, police said, a car fleeing from officers crashed into her on Northeast 82nd Street, near Biscayne Boulevard.
The car that hit the victim’s vehicle burst into flames. The driver was taken to the hospital and charged.
On May 25, three people were killed and two others were injured along Northeast 82nd Street and Third Place after, investigators said, a car crashed into a duplex and caught fire.
Back in 2020, a car smashed into the Primal Fit Miami on the corner Northeast 82nd Street and Second Avenue, about a block away from Friday’s crash.
“I think it’s the speeding. I think, basically, it’s a one way, so people come from the beach, having a good time,” said the apartment building resident.
Northeast 82nd Street was closed to traffic between First and Second avenues but has since reopened.
Friday night, 7News captured flowers propped up against a tree at the scene of the crash, inches away from the mangled fence and pieces of the car.
Speaking with 7News on the phone, Khan’s family asked for their privacy.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
