AZUSA (CBSLA) — Authorities say one person was killed and another rushed to the hospital when a suspected drunken driver slammed into a gas station in California.

The violent crash at a Mobil gas station unfolded in the Azusa area around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

The crash was caught on camera. Footage showed the vehicle hit the pumps, knock them down, and flip over.

Though the gas station was open, no one was present at the time of the crash.

Besides drinking, police believe the driver was going faster than the posted speed limit of 25 miles per hour.

The driver survived the crash while the passenger did not.

The young man in his 20s died at the scene and the driver will likely face some very serious charges.
