One person died and a Ferrari splintered in half in a three-car crash in southern California on Friday afternoon.
Aerial footage from Fox 11 Los Angeles showed the red sports car scene in pieces.
The Orange County Fire Department told Fox News Saturday that the call came in at 3:42 p.m. PT.
They treated three adults upon arrival, one of whom was flown.
KTLA reported that the driver of the Ferrari was pronounced dead at the scene.
California Highway Patrol public information officer Anselmo Templado confirmed to Fox News Digital that Robert Nicoletti, the driver of the Ferrari, suffered fatal injuries when he was thrown from the vehicle due to the force of the impact.
Fox 11 noted that investigators said speed was a factor in the accident, which occurred in the Silverado area off Santiago Canyon Road, east of Limestone Canyon Regional Park.
Templado agreed, explaining that Nicoletti was unable to negotiate the curve of the roadway due to the speed of the car. Alcohol is said to have played no role in this crash.
The CHP told Fox News that a Mazda SUV, a Toyota and a Ferrari were involved in the crash.
The drivers of the other two vehicles were only slightly injured, Templado explained.
They said a portion of Santiago Canyon Road was closed between 4:12 p.m. and 8:02 p.m. PT.
