The driver of a black Chevy Camaro was seriously injured in a two-car collision in the northwestern area of Fontana on Oct. 1.

At about 10:50 p.m., the Fontana Police Department and the San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to the incident in the 14100 block of Foothill Boulevard.

When firefighters arrived on scene, they located a car that was on fire in the westbound lanes of Foothill.

Firefighters were able to remove the driver from the car and quickly extinguished the fire.

Emergency medical responders treated the driver and he was transported to a hospital with serious injuries.

According to a Fontana P.D. officer, witnesses said the driver of the Camaro was traveling eastbound on Foothill at a high rate of speed and allegedly blew through the red light at Banana Avenue and Foothill.

Authorities said the driver of a white Hyundai Sonata was driving northbound on Banana and entered the intersection on a green light and broadsided the Camaro.

The driver of the Camaro continued eastbound on Foothill, jumped the center divider, and came to a fiery stop in the westbound lanes of Foothill.

Both vehicles sustained major damage.

Foothill was closed in both directions from Banana to Cherry for the investigation and cleanup of fuel.

The Fontana P.D. is handling the investigation.
