A Miami medical school student is thankful after surviving a hit-and-run crash in Brickell in mid-December.

WSVN.com reports that the crash occurred on Southeast Seventh Street when a Dodge Durango slammed into Jason Greenfield and Ian Edelman. Greenfield is a medical student at the University of Miami.

In a video of the crash, shared on social media, the Durango can be seen jumping up on the curb, striking the men, then coming to a stop on the sidewalk. Some believe that the Durango may have been racing shortly before the crash.
