There were no serious injuries after a McLaren sports car crashed and burst into flames Monday morning on Florida's Turnpike in Tamarac.

The crash happened just before 10 a.m. on the northbound side of the Turnpike near Sunrise and Commercial boulevards.

A McLaren somehow lost control, went onto the right shoulder, crashed into a tree and burst into flames, officials said. It crashed into a black SUV in the process.

Chopper 6 was overhead after Tamarac and Lauderhill fire officials extinguished the vehicle's flames. The drivers had minor injuries, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
