SIMI VALLEY (CBSLA) — A woman is dead and two others were taken to the hospital in critical condition after their car overturned and slammed into a home in Simi Valley.
The crash happened about 1:30 a.m. at a home on the corner of Sycamore Drive and Morley Street.
Investigators said they believe the driver of the Nissan 350Z car was speeding southbound on Sycamore Drive and attempted to make a right turn onto Morley Street when the driver lost control.
It was not immediately clear who was driving at the time of the crash, but said said at least one person was not wearing a seatbelt because the car only has two seats.
The woman who was ejected from the car and the man in the car were taken to the hospital in critical condition. A second woman who was trapped inside the vehicle died at the scene.
The woman who died has not yet been identified.
At the time of the crash, a 20-year-old man was in the bedroom playing video games. The man’s mother said that the car pushed the bed into her son, and then the bed pushed him over.
“He’s lucky,” Gurnam Singh, the father of the homeowner, said. “That’s all I can say, because if the car go a little bit more in, could have had a big, big disaster.”
Singh’s son rents the home to the mother of the 20-year-old. She said right after the crash, she called 911 and stayed with the three people out on the lawn until help arrived.
“I’m shocked right now,” Kevin Botero, a friend of the victims, said. “I don’t even know how I feel right now.”
Friends of the people in the vehicle said they were all in their 20s and all lived in Simi Valley.
The home was yellow-tagged and the 20-year-old and his mother were said to be staying in a hotel until repair work could be completed.
