HURRICANE — Investigators believe alcohol may have been a factor in a fiery head-on collision early Sunday involving a BMW.

Just before 1 a.m., a BMW drifted into oncoming traffic and struck a Chevy pickup near 2500 West State Street, said Hurricane Police Sgt. Brandon Buell.

Two men inside the pickup were injured and taken to a local hospital. The lone driver in the BMW was also transported to the hospital.

The collision also sparked a small fire that witnesses were able to put out.

The driver of the BMW was arrested for investigation of DUI and several other traffic-related crimes, according to a statement from Hurricane police.

Additional details will be posted as they become available.
