Doral, Florida Police Officer Michael Rodriguez Rescues Man from Burning Car


A Florida police officer goes into action after a fiery traffic accident, pulling one of the drivers from the wreck. That move is captured on a dashboard-mounted camera in a police car.

Dashcam video shows the aftermath of a head-on crash on March 26, 2011 near the intersection of N.W. 58th and 87th Avenue.

A Mazda traveling eastbound on 58th crashed with a white Porsche. The Porsche ignited after the crash, and an explosion followed. Police Officer Michael Rodriguez of the Doral Police Department was able to free the man who was wedged slightly by the steering wheel. Officer Rodriguez forced the door open and dragged the man to safety. The man survived the crash.
