MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - A bad crash has sent a mother and two children to the hospital.
Surveillance video showed a car out of control and headed straight for danger, slamming into a parked SUV, causing a chain reaction crash of parked vehicles and then finally stopping at a light pole that came down.
The crash occurred in the area of Northwest 22nd Avenue near Northwest 162nd Street, Monday night.
Neighbors said those inside the southbound car were a woman and two children, all of whom were severely injured.
The other vehicles hit were said to be empty.
“As soon as I heard the accident, I came out running to see if anybody needed help,” said Manuel Blanco, a nearby resident. “When we approach the car, we saw the two kids were all bloodied up. I took off my shirt to cover one of them up.”
Shortly after, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue airlifted the victims to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center.
On the scene, a large pole was seen on the ground, as well as smashed vehicles on the street near homes, including one with a broken front fence.
Video of the aftermath showed more damage of the broken fence from a neighbor that lives in front of the affected house.
Jenner Hoyez said three parked cars that belong to his family are destroyed.
“She just [kept driving],” he said. “She didn’t even brake.”
Police closed Northwest 22nd Avenue, as Florida Power and Light arrived to work on the area.
“The lady that was driving was sitting on her steering wheel, and her legs were all the way to the seat,” said Blanco. “With the help from everybody here in the community, we took both of them out, and I took off my shirt to cover one.”
Neighbors told 7News the children seemed unresponsive.
The car that caused the accident has since been towed away.
What led up to this crash is still under investigation.
7News has asked about the condition of the family, and we are waiting to hear back.
