BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Several citizens assisted Palm Bay police officers in saving a driver from a fiery crash at about 12 noon Sunday at 4700 Dixie Highway in Palm Bay.

According to Karyn Barber, Community Information Coordinator, Palm Bay Police Sgt. Steve Shytle and Officer Ryan VanNote responded to the vehicle crash where they found it over the embankment and on fire.

“Upon arrival, the officers observed the driver trapped in the vehicle and began a rescue attempt,” said Barber in a release.
