Four people are expected to survive a violent crash after the driver of a car slammed into a tree in southwest Miami-Dade early Thursday.

The crash happened just before 4:30 a.m. on Southwest 97th Road, just north of Kendall Drive.

Firefighters arrived and had to cut through the car to free the four occupants, officials said. It took about 15 minutes to free the victims, who weren't identified.

All four were rushed to the trauma center at Kendall Regional Medical Center where they're expected to survive, officials said.

Nayi Cardentey, who lives nearby, was saying goodbye to her husband when she heard tires squealing outside.

"It was scary," she said, noting she's still shaken up. She said she only saw three people in the car: one man and two women, and that the man was screaming "Please wakeup!"

Authorities haven't said what caused the crash.
