EDGEWATER, Fla. — (NBC) - Dramatic body camera video shows the aftermath of a deadly wrong-way crash that closed Interstate 95 in Central Florida for hours Wednesday.
Cameras also captured the heroic efforts of an Edgewater Police Department officer and a Volusia County Sheriff's Office deputy to rescue a victim from a burning car.
A wrong-way driver had just slammed into the car driven by a 22-year-old Logan Aschendorf of Boca Raton.
Law enforcement arrived and then battled flames and fumes to get to Aschendorf. Eventually, they were able to smash open a window to free him from the burning car.
Authorities say the wrong-way driver, who was killed, was traveling north in the southbound lanes. He has been identified as 23-year-old Devon Standish of Daytona Beach.
To add to the confusion and traffic, a semi that slowed down for the crash was hit by a dump truck carrying asphalt, which tipped over.
Clean up crews shut down I-95 for 12 hours to scoop up asphalt and repair the road.
Aschendorf is recovering from critical injuries.
But it's the life saving effort by a deputy and a police officer that will forever be remembered.
Edgewater PD & VCSO pulled a victim from a burning vehicle after a head-on crash overnight on I-95. The other driver was killed, but these officers pulled this young man to safety so he could get to a hospital. He was listed in critical condition. Warning: Intense footage pic.twitter.com/19prX8VlE3
