A 16-year-old Palmdale teen was killed this morning when an alleged drunk driver crashed into her home.

Police arrived around 4 a.m. to find a car embedded in a Palmdale apartment, citizens detaining the suspect, and the victim already dead, a sheriff's spokesman told City News Service.

Neither the victim's nor the suspect's name have been released.
