ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (KABC) -- A wild crash that sent a car barreling toward a home before catching on fire was caught on surveillance video.

It happened just before 2 a.m. on Friday in the 19000 block of La Loma Drive in an unincorporated part of Tustin.

The video shows the speeding car heading directly toward to the home, hitting a mailbox before flipping several times through the air.

The car crash-landed upside down into the side of the home and quickly caught on fire, according to authorities.





Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire soon after they arrived.

Investigators with the Orange County Fire Authority said the driver and a passenger managed to escape the smashed car. One of them was sent to the hospital and was reportedly stable.

The other refused to seek medical attention, according to authorities.

Meanwhile, no one was inside the home at the time of the crash. The house itself wasn't seriously damaged.

It's unclear what caused the crash.

The incident remains under investigation.
