WATCH: Good Samaritans jump into action to save driver

- Police responded to a fiery car crash on Dixie Highway in Palm Bay Sunday afternoon. When they arrived, they found people frantically trying to save the driver who went over an embankment.

During extraction, police say the driver became combative. The officers had to physically restrain the driver while getting him back to the edge of the road and away from the fire. Several people helped in pulling the officers and driver to safety.

Palm Bay Fire Rescue responded and treated the driver, who was later transported to Holmes Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.
