Stolen Car Crashes Into Miami Dade College Building, Explodes on Camera

Just after midnight this morning, a stolen car was speeding through Liberty City when it clipped a light post and careened into a Miami Dade College building.

The car exploded into flames, killing one person. Four survivors are in custody at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Incredibly, the entire episode was caught on the building's security cameras.

According to the Miami Police Department, the four-door Lincoln was reported stolen August 18.

One occupant, presumably the driver, died at the scene. Three others were transported by ambulance to Jackson, where two are stable and one is in critical condition.

Amazingly, a fifth joyrider left the scene on his or her own before also being arrested after seeking hospital treatment.

None of the victims has been identified yet.
