    They say she appeared to be between 30-40 years old. Her only I-D was a Costco card.

    The car was towed from the scene.

    This strip mall has a few small clothing stores but several vacant units and the site of the crash is about a half a block away from the street.

    There are no skid marks that we could see leading up to the impact, just a big mess that will need a lot of cleanup and repairs.
