Sports Car Flips And Slides Into Simi Valley Home

One person is dead and another critically injured when a vehicle went out of control and crashed into a Simi Valley home in the early morning hours on Tuesday.

According to a report filed by KTLA in Los Angeles, the crash occurred near the intersection of Sycamore and Morley Street in Simi Valley at approximately 1:30 a.m.

Simi Valley Police Department Commander Steve Shorts told reporters that the driver of a Nissan 350 Z sports car lost control. The vehicle then rolled onto its roof and slid into the home.

Police investigators say that the vehicle accommodates only two people and that there had been three people inside the car at the time. One 22-year-old woman who had been inside the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.   

A 22-year-old man who was in the car at the time of the crash is the registered owner.  He was taken to an area hospital for treatment of injuries and is listed in critical condition.  His name has not been released and authorities have not stated who was driving at the time of the fatal crash.

No further information has been released regarding the third occupant of the vehicle.

There were three people inside the home at the time of the crash. Thankfully, no one inside was hurt.  

Ventura County Fire Department Battalion Chief Dan Preston said that inspectors are concerned about the structural integrity of the home after the crash.  Because the house will probably be considered unsafe, the occupants of the house would likely have to find another place to stay until repairs are made.
