A driver slammed into a big-rig after driving westbound on the eastbound lanes of the 10 Freeway in Colton early Saturday.

The incident occurred near 9th Street around 1:10 a.m.

Colton Fire Department officials say the wrong-way driver had to be extricated from the vehicle. He sustained minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital. The big-rig driver walked away with no injuries.

Two lanes of the freeway were temporarily closed as crews worked to clean up diesel fuel that had spilled following the crash.

Justin Romo, 19, of El Monte was killed Aug. 9 when a wrong-way driver slammed into him on the westbound 210 Freeway in Azusa. This is the third wrong-way wreck in just two weeks.
