Early this morning at around 2:30 a lime green 2008 Porsche plummeted approximately 30 feet off the westbound 101 Freeway near Shoup Avenue and crashed into a parking structure on Burbank Boulevard. Once the vehicle landed it burst into fire, setting a nearby parked car aflame as well. The driver of the vehicle, who appeared to be alone, died in the accident. Their name has not been released. *According to another news network, the car was a Lamborghini.
