sleeping inside that garage. when firefighters got here, it took some time to get a woman out from under the car. we don't have an update this morning on the extent of her injuries but you can imagine they are quite serious. discretion happened just after 10:00 last night. right at the intersection of farnsworth street and purdue street in san leandro. we were able last night to speak with another driver was driving on the road about the same time this happened. she watched everything play out. saw the car slammed into the house. she asked us not to show her face. >> he went straight through the stop sign, after he clipped this girls car, i guess he realized he was on the wrong side of the street, we heard the brakes, then he went straight through the house. >> reporter: as you can see, san leandro police had this intersection blocked off for quite some time last night as they investigated this crash. police say it's too early to say if the driver may have been under the influence or what other factors may have caused the car to leave the road.
witnesses believe that car was going close to 100 miles an hour. authorities say there is significant structural damage as you can imagine to this home. so nobody allowed to live here for the time being. we will hope to get an update on the conditions of that woman at some point later. >> thank you, alex. we will check in with you -- check in with you in a little bit. let's see what your weather is going to be like. >> pretty chilly, not bad in the sun but that's about it. pretty cool out there. >> mostly 40s and 30s right now? >> yeah. about 60 for the high for everybody. >> i have my coat out. >> you should. >> a lot of lead time on that. still a few morning showers to the south, mainly on the monterey peninsula. some overnight, san jose, santa cruz mountains, los altos, looks like that's about done, though. still holding on down at monterey, you can see a couple there around pg. looks like everything is driving southward including the system as it moves east and
