However, there is not a clear reason as to why the vehicle ended up off the road.

An off-duty Florida police officer jumped into action after witnessing an SUV to get to the bank on a ramp and go airborne on Friday morning.

Reserve, Ponce, Intel patrol Officer Rich Gardner, was on the state Road 415 in New Smyrna Beach, when he saw a white SUV drifting across the road, before it was a hit back in the drive and it will go up in the air. The vehicle hit several trees before landing in a ditch.

Gardner and some other men went to the smoking SUV, and then helped the two people, a man and a woman inside the vehicle, according to Fox 35.

“There was one girl that was closest to the door, and she was in a bit of pain, she told me that she had had pain in the lower back. I asked her to grab my arm, so I was able to pull her out. We’ll have to take her out first, and then the driver went to jump on his own,” Gardner said.

The police officer remained with the pair until a nurse took over for both of them. He also told Fox 35 that he has faith that they will go to in order to survive.

“It’s almost surreal to see something like that,” Garner added, “You can’t expect something like that in your normal course of the day.”

It is still not clear as to why she drove across the oncoming lane.
