The driver was traveling at a high rate of speed when she ran off the road and crashed into a residence, Los Angeles Police Department Public Information Officer Jeff Lee told CNN. The impact caused the car to burst into flames and the driver suffered burns. Los Angeles Fire EMS took her to a local hospital. It took firefighters more than an hour to “access, contain and fully extinguish the flames that had become entrenched in the heavily damaged structure,” the LAFD said.
No other injuries were reported.
