The police in Florida released a terrifying dashcam video from the moment an out-of-control car collided with an officer at the back of an officer's vehicle and went up in flames.
The fiery crash occurred in Interstate 75 in Fort Meyers in November when a patrol of the Florida Highway Patrol had stopped to help another driver.

Another driver, later identified as Fernando Espinoza, was approaching but waving at the last moment of the highway to prevent him from colliding with another vehicle.
The police said Espinoza lost control of his car, hit the guardrail and plowed into the rear of the Marechaussee's vehicle.
The driver's car burst into flames immediately.
The trooper could step out of his own car to check the driver.

When he realized that Espinoza was trapped, the trooper was desperately filmed to open the driver's car to help him escape.
The cavalryman dragged an apparently limp Espinoza into safety on the highway.
The footage was released by the Florida Highway Patrol to distribute the state's motion notification, which means drivers have to change lanes when they see an officer stop on a road.
First aid workers provide a critical service on the side of the road, so go there so they can do their job safely! It is the law, it is courtesy and above all: it is a lifesaver! & # 39; the highway patrol tweeted next to the video.
