"The driver, who admitted to using narcotics, will be admitted to a local hospital for observation", the news release said.

Two people were injured after the driver of a auto, who was apparently speeding, crashed into a Santa Ana building and somehow ended up in the second floor, Orange County Fire Agency officials said Sunday morning.

Authorities say the Nissan Altima hit a centre divider today, soared into the air and plowed into the top floor of the two-story structure. Authorities had to rescue the second person.

The notion that the United States can free itself from the need to import foreign oil by increasing domestic production is false. Included in the proposal are multiple regions off of the Alaskan coast that have always been targeted by energy companies.

Santa Ana firefighters work to remove the vehicle from the building. The auto was traveling at a high speed when it hit the concrete median.

The incident caused a small fire that injured one person, who managed to get out of the sedan unassisted, the OCFA said.

Fire officials used a crane to pull the vehicle out of the building and bring it down, Horner said.

Fire crews were on hand to put out a brief fire to the building.
