An out-of-control car flipped over and crashed into a Simi Valley home Tuesday morning, killing one person and seriously injuring two others who were in a two-seater car.
The crash occurred about 1:30 a.m. near the intersection of Sycamore Drive and Morley Street, Simi Valley Police Department Commander Steve Shorts said.
Emergency crews arrived at the scene to find the overturned vehicle had plowed into the wall of a home on the corner of the street.
A 22-year-old man who was thrown out of the car was found lying on the grass near the the crash site, police said in a news release. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Officers then found two badly injured women inside the car. Authorities previously reported that one of the women had been ejected from the car.
Paramedics arrived and pronounced 20-year-old Nicole Segura dead at the scene.
Another woman had to be extricated from the car before she was also taken to a hospital in critical condition, according to police.
Police described the vehicle as a 2008 blue Nissan 350Z. The car was initially believed to be a Sentra.
Investigators believe the Nissan was speeding southbound on Sycamore Drive and was trying to make a right turn onto Morley Street when the driver lost control, Shorts said.
It was unclear who was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash, but police said the 22-year-old man is the owner of the car.
“It is also important to note, the Nissan 350 Z is a two-seat sports car,” Simi Valley police said in a statement. “There were three subjects riding inside the car when the collision occurred.”
None of the three people inside the home were injured but they will likely need to find another place to stay, at least temporarily, according to Ventura County Fire Department Battalion Chief Dan Preston.
“Most likely the residents are going to be displaced tonight,” he said.
Officials are concerned about the structural integrity of the home. It was unclear if it would be red-tagged.
