A man allegedly traveling at more than 100 miles per hour in a Lamborghini on the 15 Freeway near Fallbrook was in the hospital Sunday following a crash that set the car on fire and burned him.
The crash was reported about 11:15 p.m. on the northbound Interstate 15, just north of Fallbrook and about 15 miles south of Temecula, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The driver, a 35-year-old San Marcos resident, may have been drinking before the crash, CHP officials said.
He suffered major injuries -- including burns to his face -- and was airlifted to a San Diego burn center, CHP Officer Jim Bettencourt said.
The 2008 sports car drifted from the right lane across the freeway and into the center median, Bettencourt said; the vehicle was split in half and caught fire.
The crash was under investigation.
