A red C4 Corvette now has black accents after it erupted into flames early Friday morning when the driver crashed into a pole on Santa Fe Drive in Littleton, Colorado.
The car suffered extensive damage from the cab forward.
Two people were in the Corvette, with one having to be extricated from the vehicle and taken to the hospital. The other person left the scene but, after being found nearby by police, was put into handcuffs and also carried to the hospital for medical treatment.
No reason for the arrest was given by authorities, who noted that it was a felony accident investigation.
Traffic finally reopened on southbound Santa Fe Drive after the road had been closed for more than seven hours as the investigation was being conducted.
Watch a second accident here that involved a driver on northbound Santa Fe, which remained open, hitting a police vehicle.
