The crash involved Atlanta Braves infielder Sean Rodriguez and his family who remain at the hospital.

Rodriguez, 31, t-boned the patrol car Saturday morning after it hit a Honda Civic and crossed his path.

Rodriguez’s wife was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center where a spokesperson for the hospital said she was in fair condition, as of Monday. His children, 8-year-old Sean Jr. and 2-year-old Zikiel, were taken to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. They remain in serious but stable condition.

Rodriguez and the driver of the Honda, 62-year-old Marcus Rodriguez, were treated at the scene.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue helped the injured and put out the burning patrol car which had erupted into flames as a result of the crash. Police say Foreman died in the crash.

Good Samaritan Pablo Arriola said he tried to help Foreman.

“I approached. He looked worse. He looked like a young man. He was already dead,” said Arriola.

Foreman had served a prison sentence for a burglary in 2008 in Escambia County. He was released in 2011.

Miami-Dade Police said speed was a factor in the fiery crash.
