SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say a Lamborghini hit speeds topping 100 miles an hour before it smashed into the median and exploded in flames on Interstate 15 in northern San Diego County.

A California Highway Patrol official says the driver, a 35-year-old San Marcos man, may have been drinking alcohol before the crash late Saturday near Fallbrook.

City News Service reports the driver was taken by helicopter to a hospital where he was treated for burns to his face and other serious injuries.

The CHP says the 2008 Lamborghini was headed north on Interstate when the car drifted from the right lane into the center median.

The crash cut the car in half and it caught fire.

Both the northbound and southbound lanes of the freeway were shut down for about 20 minutes following the crash.

The driver's name was not released.
