A 9-year-old girl burned to death and her mother barely escaped the wreckage after their car hit a big rig on the 101 near Calabasas, overturned and burst into flames.
It happened in the eastbound lanes of the 101 near Las Virgenes Road around 8:30 a.m. this morning, but some lanes were partially closed off until nearly 2 p.m. this afternoon, according to the Los Angeles Times..
It is reported that the mother rear-ended a big rig and lost control of the car. She was flown to UCLA Medical Center, with burns covering more than 80 percent of her body.
