A Florida Highway Patrol trooper handling a fender-bender on a Miami-area highway suddenly found himself tending to three gunshot victims.

FHP spokesman Tom Pikul says a car with four people pulled up behind the trooper Friday night on State Road 826 as he was tending to the accident.

Three of the people in the car had gunshot wounds and one window had at least one bullet hole.

The trooper called Miami-Dade Police for help.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue tells The Miami Herald that the three gunshot victims were airlifted to a hospital. Police were investigating the shooting.
