Palm Bay police, citizens rescue driver from fiery crash

Two Palm Bay police officers and several citizens are being credited with pulling a driver to safety after a vehicle rolled over into an embankment and caught fire.

Sgt. Steve Shytle and Officer Ryan VanNote responded to the crash on Sunday at 4700 Dixie Highway where they found the driver trapped in the vehicle.

The man became combative as he was pulled out, forcing officers to restrain him before getting him out to safety.

The man was treated at the scene by Palm Bay Fire Rescue before being transported to Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne with minor injuries.
