STREET RACING POSSIBLE FACTOR IN FIERY BEVERLY HILLS CAR CRASH

BENEDICT CANYON, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A teenage driver crashed his Mercedes into a tree, which then burst into flames Friday night, and police believe street racing is to blame.

Authorities received a call at 11:30 p.m. regarding the accident that occurred at Benedict Canyon and Clear View drives in Beverly Hills. Witnesses said the teen and another driver in a BMW were racing.

The teen had lost control of his car and crashed into the tree. The impact from the crash sent the car skidding across the street into the driveway of a nearby home. Residents in the area helped the driver and a passenger out of the vehicle before it erupted in flames. The heat from the fire also damaged a Prius that was in the driveway.

The two teens were transported to a nearby hospital for complaints of pain. The driver of the BMW remained at the scene, and both cars were impounded.

Both drivers and the passenger are 17 years old.

No arrests were made, and authorities said drugs and alcohol did not appear to be involved.

Neighbors said accidents are common in the area because motorists insist on speeding up and down Benedict Canyon Drive.

"Someone's going to get killed," homeowner Michael Chasteen said.

A 16-year-old girl driving with friends escaped serious injury after she was ejected from a car that plunged 100 feet (30 meters) off a cliff in northern Arizona, and the vehicle landed on top of her, police said on Thursday.

Rescuers worked for more than four hours on Wednesday to free the teenager from a space created by a depression in the overturned car’s roof, police said.

“It appeared her body occupied part of this space thus avoiding the full weight of the car,” Dwight D’Evelyn, spokesman for the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, said in a statement.

Rescue crews reported the driver was conscious and able to speak throughout the ordeal. She was flown to Flagstaff Medical Center for treatment. Her two passengers, girls aged 16 and 17, also only suffered minor injuries, D’Evelyn said.

Police said the youths were on their way home when they took a corner too fast and lost control of their four-door sedan. The vehicle flipped over as it tumbled off the road and came to rest upside down, with the driver pinned underneath.

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to have been a factor in the incident, D’Evelyn said.
