Auto crashes into police substation, person trapped in vehicle

Auto crashes into police substation, person trapped in vehicle

The crash occurred at around 7 a.m. Authorities now believe the driver, 36-year-old Giftson Cherefant, intentionally drove through the gate and smashed into the back of the station, breaching a utility room. "It could have been a knife, glass", said Miami police spokeswoman Kiara Delva.

Colina said the video shows the driver crashing through the gate and gaining speed again as he plowed through the station's rear exterior wall. "If he would have stopped there, then perhaps there's still a chance that's accidental".

The fact that Cherefant increased his speed after passing through the gate indicated to authorities that he had intentionally made a decision to hit the substation wall.

Officer Kiara Delva of the Miami Police Department said police found Cherenfant pinned inside his auto, adding that the Miami Fire Rescue had to cut the vehicle doors off to remove him, according to Miami Patch.

Cherenfant's motive at this time remains unclear, Colina said. "The officers inside immediately approached the vehicle weapons drawn".

The driver was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Because a rifle, a safe and other items were found inside the vehicle, the building was evacuated, local roads were closed and the bomb squad was called to investigate. The bomb squad was called to the scene while surrounding roads were closed off as a precaution.

After a three hour investigation, bomb techs determined that no explosives were inside the auto.

The police chief says he does not have a violent criminal record. So he meant to breach the rear gate. "There is really nothing in his history that would indicate why he would behave this way".

Authorities said that Giftson Cherefant, 36, intentionally smashed his auto into the back of a Liberty City police substation in Miami, Florida on Friday at about 7am.
