SIMI VALLEY (CBSLA) — A woman is dead and two more people hospitalized after their car overturned and slammed into a home in Simi Valley.
The crash happened about 1:45 a.m. at a home on the corner of Sycamore Drive and Morley Street. At least one person was ejected from the crash.
A man and a woman were rushed to the hospital, but a woman who remained trapped inside was declared dead at the scene. Police say the car was a Nissan 350Z, which has seating for only two people.
The car ended up on the front lawn of the home after slamming into a front room, taking out a support beam, destroying the brick façade and collapsing a window frame.
“Yeah it was loud. It sounded like somebody hit a trash can with a baseball bat,” neighbor Joseph Hampton said.
No one inside the home was hurt, but the structure has been evacuated and yellow-tagged.
Speed is being investigated as a factor in the crash. Sycamore Drive was shut down in both directions between Elizondo and Heywood streets.
