LOS ANGELES, Calif. — A 6-year-old Bakersfield girl was killed when the car she was a passenger in crashed in Los Angeles according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP reported that a 31-year-old woman was driving a 2019 Subaru northbound on The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch at a high rate of speed when the vehicle veered into the southbound lane, striking a curb, as sign and a traffic signal. The vehicle than continued on across an intersection and struck another traffic signal, as well as a tree and a signal box.

The vehicle eventually came to rest and caught fire. The woman, the 6-year-old girl and a 2-year-old girl were pulled from the vehicle by good Samaritans.

The 6-year-old girl later died. The 2-year-old was initially listed in critical condition and later was said to be stable.

ABC7 identified the 31-year-old woman as the mother of two children. They also reported that the woman was not wearing any clothes at the time of the accident.

"She was in the middle console area with no seat belt," said Bryan Timmerman, one of several good Samaritans who responded to the scene. "She was completely nude, no clothes."
