MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - Two people were injured Thursday morning after the car they were in crashed and burned in northwest Miami-Dade County.

The crash occurred before sunrise on Northwest 52nd Avenue near Northwest 177th Street.

A nearby resident heard the car crash into a church gate and ran outside to help.

"We were scared because the car was on fire," the woman, who only wanted to be identified as Iman, said. "We thought it was going to explode."

She said her neighbor came outside and helped her pull the victims out. They were airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center.

"It feels great," Iman said of helping the victims. "It just feels really scary at the same time."
