Two people were injured after the driver of a vehicle, 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.

The incident unfolded in the 300 block of E. 17th Street in Santa Ana. The vehicle then crashed into the second floor of a two-story building with a dentist office in it, according to Orange County Fire Authority.

Orange County Fire Agency (OCFA) shared photos of the scene, where one person was temporarily trapped in the white saloon auto as a fire burned in the building.

Santa Ana Police said in a statement that the driver of the vehicle admitted to using narcotics. The driver is expected to be admitted to a hospital for an evaluation. The fire department tweeted that the vehicle then "went airborne and landed into the building".

The occurrence caused a little fire that harmed one individual, who figured out how to escape the vehicle unassisted, the OCFA said. The driver and the passenger both sustained minor injuries.
