NORTH MIAMI-DADE, Fla. --
A woman who somehow crashed her minivan along Interstate 95, suddenly turned combative with fire rescue and police, according to investigators.
When he arrived at the scene Monday afternoon, Robert Webster, of Miami Fire Rescue, found burning wreckage, a combative victim and seven lanes of backed up traffic .
As he walked towards the victim, 39-year-old Luz Infante, he saw she was holding a knife.
"I could not make out what she was saying to me. At that point, I backed away from her," Webster told Local 10's Ross Palombo.
Miami police then arrived and disarmed Infante. She was taken to Jackson Memorial for a psychological evaluation.
"Our primary concern is our safety and the safety of individuals, even those who wish to do themselves harm," Webster said.
