    CHP officials said a 2007 Jaguar was traveling at a high-rate of speed when it struck the guard rail, tearing open the left side of the Jaguar and ejecting the driver.

    The Jaguar was struck by two Honda's and a Hummer. No one in those vehicles was injured.

    The driver of the Hummer was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence as a result of the crash, CHP officers said.
