Driver Arrested After Fiery Crash On 101

caraccidentA nasty accident last night in Santa Maria.  25-year-old Matthew Bayer was driving his BMW southbound on 101 south of Betteravia when for some reason he drifted off the right of the road.  

He struck a call box, then careened into the left lane where he then struck the center divider.  His car ended up in the center lane totally engulfed in fire.  Bayer then hoofed it off the freeway and was picked up by local PD.

Amazing he could do that since his ankle was broken.  He had contusions as well and was taken to the hospital. The CHP says alcohol was involved.
