MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – One man is dead and two others were hospitalized after a crash that sent a car into a canal Sunday night in northwest Miami-Dade County.

The crash occurred shortly after 8:15 p.m. at Northwest 25th Street and 117th Avenue.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said two vehicles collided, sending one of them crashing through the guardrail and into a canal. Witnesses told Local 10 News that the other car hit a pole.

"I didn't see how the car hit the other one," witness Omar Vasquez said. "I just heard the noise. It was loud, like a bomb."

Two Doral police officers were the first to arrive and immediately jumped into the water to try to save the driver.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said one man was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital, while another man was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center.

Their conditions and identities have not been released.
