MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Dashboard camera video obtained by Local 10 News shows a trooper’s perspective of a dangerous collision that ended a chase in Miami Gardens.

On May 7, a driver was arrested after crashing into two Florida Highway Patrol cruisers while trying to evade a traffic stop.

Authorities say Joseph Sanders, 26, was behind the wheel of a green Honda SUV that was seen driving on the shoulder, cutting off other drivers near the Palmetto Expressway.

The dashcam video from FHP shows him driving erratically as he wove in and out of traffic, running red lights and putting dozens of other drivers at risk.

Troopers eventually followed him to a dead-end street where they managed to stop him — but not without a head-on collision.

That trooper suffered only minor injuries.

Sanders is still in jail facing a long list of charges.
