The Rochester (NY) Police Department released new video Monday, showing the moment officers responded to two women who suffered serious injuries after a fiery crash last week.
A body camera worn by one of the officers captures a beam of light coming from the burning car that officials say caught on fire after making contact with a bridge while travelling on an underpass.
The women shown in the bodycam footage were dragged away from the burning wreckage and transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
Explosions could be heard throughout the four minute video. They could likely be attributed to chemical and mechanical reactions caused by fire making contact with the vehicle’s engine components.
