We have news of another possible street racing crash, this time ending with one of the cars hitting a home and catching it on fire. A young girl almost lost her life. NBC Los Angeles reports.
The crash happened in Hancock Park on S. Rimpau Boulevard around 11:30 pm. Police received a report of a traffic collision between two vehicles. When they arrived, they saw fire.
Police told reporters that one of the vehicles lost control and hit a curb before hitting a tree and a garage. Then the car caught fire to the home an some nearby brush.
Firefighters fought the blaze for around 20 minutes to prevent the flames from reaching the attic of the home. The car and its leaking fuel did not help matters, but they managed to prevent the entire house from getting consumed.
A girl was in the room closest to where the vehicle hit the house and had just left before the impact happened. She was unharmed, but the driver in the crash died at the scene.
The investigation is still happened. We can assume that police are questioning witnesses to search for the other driver.
We hope the police finds the other driver soon. Not only is street racing claiming more lives, it’s also damaging other people’s property.
