A former John Muir High School football player was seriously injured in a car collision on Saturday afternoon when the Mustang he was driving in was sheared in half.

According to the Pasadena Black Pages, Sultan McCullough lost control of his car in Monrovia on Saturday and crashed into an SUV.

The violent collision took place about 1 p.m. in the 1900 block of Myrtle Avenue.

McCullough was allegedly racing another vehicle just south of Duarte Road when he lost control of his vehicle and hit the SUV, which was not involved in the race.

The driver of the SUV was able to avoid a head-on collision when he saw the Mustang coming at him. McCullough was thrown from his vehicle.

McCullough and the driver of the SUV were both hospitalized. According to KTLA 5, which did not identify him by name, the driver of the Mustang was transported with “life-threatening injuries” and has undergone several surgeries.

It is not known if McCullough will face charges in the incident. A second driver reportedly fled the scene.

During his time at Muir, McCullough was one of the top sprinters in the state. McCullough and Obea Moore led the Mustangs to a CIF State title in the 4×100 relay. The team still holds the record for the Arcadia Invitational.

After high school he attended USC and later played for the Washington Redskins.
