All five people were transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital, incredibly, with non-life threatening injuries.

According to Miami Beach Police, two of the five people injured were small children.

Police say the driver and the three adult victims are in stable condition.

Unfortunately police say the children, which are now being referred to as infants, are in critical condition.

Jason Terrance and his wife said they heard the crash from their apartment.

He said he came out to a bloody scene with an unconscious driver behind the wheel.

"His head was tilted back," Terrance said of the driver. "He was completely knocked out cold and he had blood all over his head."

According to Terrance, the person who needed the most help was an elderly woman.

"I lifted her head up because she had a head injury," he said.

It also appeared that the car mowed down a parking meter, moped, stroller and a trash can.

The driver, who police say is an adult male, was also transported to Jackson Memorial with non-life threatening injuries.

DUI Investigators are currently working the scene of the crash.
