BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Officials say up to five people have died after a car spun out and burst into flames early Saturday morning in Burbank, trapping people inside.
There was one survivor found about 50 yards from the burning Nissan when police arrived on the scene around 4 a.m. Sergeant Darin Ryburn says the 18-year-old woman was taken to Los Angeles County Medical Center. Fire Battalion Chief Ron Barone said paramedics reported smelling alcohol on her breath. It is unclear how she ended up outside the vehicle.
Ryburn says speed appears to be a factor in the crash.
The flames from the fire spread to nearby trees and brush and Barone says they were doused within moments of firefighter's arriving.
