COLTON, Calif. (KGTV) - At least five people died Friday afternoon in a fiery crash on Interstate 10 in the San Bernardino County community of Rialto, KABC reported.

The California Highway Patrol indicated at least three vehicles and two trucks were involved in the crash that left wreckage on both sides of the freeway at Riverside Ave. about 1 p.m.

A big rig heading west veered toward the median, crashed through the center divider and burst into flames, KTLA reported. The truck kept moving across eastbound lanes, striking several vehicles.

Five people were killed. The truck driver received only minor injuries and another driver was able to walk away from the crash.

After a nearly 16-hour shutdown of the highway, all lanes were reopened Saturday morning, KABC said. 

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
