A car that crashed and burst into flames early Wednesday, Sept. 19, may have been in a street race, according to the O.C. Register.
Responding OCFA firefighters showed up at the scene at 12:20 a.m., at the 2060 block of South Ritchey. What they found was a white sedan that was completely engulfed in flames, according to the OCFA.
The driver of the vehicle was long gone.
OCFA investigators felt that the trauma to the vehicle was the result of a high-speed race in that area. They found indications that the vehicle had lost control and possibly hit a rock on the side of the road at which point it spun out of control.
There were no other vehicles at the scene.
The blaze was put out by the firefighters. So far no word as to who might own the vehicle. Although it very well may have been a stolen vehicle.
