SUNLAND (CBSLA) — Two people have died following a car crash into a Sunland building early Monday morning, authorities said.

The crash was reported at 3:12 a.m. at 7831 West Foothill Boulevard, Los Angeles Fire Dispatcher Margaret Stewart said.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene. A woman had been trapped inside the car, and firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free her. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz said.

The Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety determined the stability of part of the building was compromised in the crash, Stewart said.
