Family members told Local 10 that Leonardo Littlejohn was driving north in his Hyundai when a Broward Sheriff's Office cruiser crashed into the car from behind.

His sister, Reatha Salter, said the car caught fire while Littlejohn was still inside.

Littlejohn was rushed to Broward Health North, where he was pronounced dead.

The cruiser was towed away from the scene early Thursday. The deputy's condition wasn't immediately known.
