Police officers smash into burning SUV to rescue driver. John Croman reports.
(KARE) Police dashboard video shows an intense roadside rescue in Maple Grove, Minnesota.
The only thing that makes the sight of a flaming SUV on the side of the highway tolerable for Rachel Aure is the knowledge that the driver, her father Douglas Aure, was no longer inside it.
"I can't say thank you enough times. And I feel like even if they would've been there even a minute later thinks would've been a lot different right now," Rachel Aure says.
