MIAMI (WSVN) – A driver was arrested and is facing DUI charges after, officials said, they collided with the City of Miami Police cruiser of an officer who had stopped to help a stranded motorist.

The incident happened along Interstate 95 northbound near Southwest Eighth Street, at around 5:30 a.m., Sunday.

“It was a miracle, man, honestly,” said Wayne Cruz, the driver who had initially pulled over on the side of the road. “Luckily, he was there, and he was able to save us all.”

Cruz credited the Miami Police sergeant with saving him from the brunt of the crash.

“The car came up … just rammed into him, messed up his car,” said Cruz.

The impact left apparent damage to the police cruiser.

Crews had pulled over along the shoulder because of a cracked rim.

The sergeant pulled up shortly after and closed the lane of traffic, as crews waited for a tow truck.

“We were just standing there man, honestly,” said Cruz. “We were sitting in the back of the truck. We barely had time to, like, honestly, just walk away or anything, and it just happened.”

Police said the driver who slammed into the cruiser was driving under the influence.

No one was injured.

“Who knows what could’ve happened?” said Cruz.

The driver responsible for the crash was placed behind bars and is facing DUI charges.
