A car burst into flames after it slammed into a box truck along U.S. 1 in Miami, triggering a search for the driver who fled the scene on foot, police said.
According to City of Miami Police, the driver of a Kia was heading south on South Dixie Highway when they rear-ended a truck carrying frozen foods near Southwest 17th Avenue, at around 6 a.m., Sunday.
A nearby surveillance camera captured the sound of impact.
The force caused the driver of the Kia to jump a curb before coming to a crashing stop underneath an overpass, causing the vehicle to ignite.
Investigators said everyone inside the Kia took off running and left the scene.
Amaury Ruiz, the driver of the box truck, said he was making deliveries on his morning route when he was hit from behind.
