One person had minor injuries after a fiery crash Wednesday in Waterloo.

Police responded to the collision between a Toyota and Chevrolet at Frobisher Drive, near Bridge Street West and Superior Drive, around 12:25 p.m.

A man who witnessed the crash told CTV News that he saw one driver get out of her vehicle just minutes before the fire erupted.

“There was a little flame over the top of the one light as I got there. I came back to get a fire extinguisher, I pulled back, and the whole top end was already on fire,” Matt Smith said.

The road was closed for several hours for the investigation and cleanup.

The driver of the Chevrolet wasn't hurt.
