Two people inside a blue C4 Corvette escaped serious injury after being hit head-on by an alleged drunk driver in a white four-door sedan in Fountain Hills, Arizona on Sunday afternoon.

Both cars erupted into flames after the crash, but fortunately bystanders helped get everyone out of the vehicles before further tragedy struck.

The driver of the sedan, Daniel Russell, 31, faces DUI charges after the collision, which occurred on Saguaro Boulevard near Shea Boulevard.

He’ll be booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail after being released from Maricopa County Medical Center, where he was transported as a precaution. Deputies followed the ambulance to conduct a DUI investigation and later arrested him at the hospital.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Joaquin Enriquez said the driver and passenger of the Corvette were airlifted to John C. Lincoln Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, two other vehicles were also involved in the incident. After the crash between the sedan and the Corvette, an SUV then bumped into one of the vehicles and rolled backward into a parked ambulance.

Two passengers in the SUV were transported to Scottsdale Shea Medical Center by ground ambulance as a precaution.

Joaquin said the Rural Metro Fire Department responded to the fires and assessed injuries.
