Terrifying video of Atlanta Braves infielder Sean John Rodriguez ... whose SUV was t-boned by a stolen cop car while driving with his family.
It all went down in Miami on Saturday ... Rodriguez and his family were just on a regular outing in their black Chevy Suburban when the stolen cop car plowed into them and exploded into flames.
The suspect had allegedly stolen the car from a nearby restaurant after distracting the officers -- and was speeding off when he crashed into Rodriguez. The suspect was killed in the crash.
Rodriguez appeared okay -- his wife and 2 children (8 years old and 2 years old) were hospitalized. The kids are in serious but stable condition. His wife is in fair condition ... according to our friends at WSVN.com.
A good Samaritan on scene saw the crash and helped pull the family out of the car.
The Braves issued a statement saying their thoughts and prayers are with the Rodriguez family.
