FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man is in the hospital after a head-on crash in east central Fresno.

It happened after 12:30 Tuesday morning at Clinton and Maple.

California Highway Patrol Officers say a Dodge van ran a red light and crashed into a Honda civic.

The car caught fire and had major front-end damage.

The van went off the road and hit a building.

The Honda driver suffered major injuries and was taken to the hospital.

Officers say the Dodge driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

"This is totally preventable," says CHP Sgt. Nicholas Ranger. "Take an uber, get a ride, call a friend, stay somewhere to sleep it off. This is preventable and didn't need to happen."

A witness called 911 about the crash.

The Dodge driver was also taken to the hospital for his injuries.
