Mother, toddler OK after car crash
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- A South Florida mother and her daughter are recovering after the car they were riding in rolled over and crashed into an apartment.
The accident happened at about 6 a.m. Wednesday, at 8635 Harding Avenue.
Ernesto Garcia said he was sleeping in the apartment above where the crash occurred. "I thought it was an earthquake or something," he said. "The whole building shook."
Garcia initially thought the passengers had died until he saw the woman exit the vehicle. "Oh, she was stunned, but she was happy for the baby though," he said.
Rescue crews transported the mother and child to an area hospital in good condition.
A landmark Miami Beach sign was destroyed in the crash.
No one in the apartment was injured.
