    WOODLAND HILLS (KABC) -- A fiery crash Saturday morning killed one person, and now investigators are trying to figure out what happened.

    There is little left of a green Lamborghini whose driver lost control on the 101.

    The car went off the freeway and landed in a nearby parking garage, bursting into flames.

    One other vehicle in that garage also caught on fire.

    A witness says the Lamborghini was speeding, but investigators say it also appears that another accident on the 101 could have caused the driver to lose control.

    Driver Dead After Porsche Falls From 101 Fwy
    WOODLAND HILLS A motorist died in a speeding Porsche that came off the Ventura (101) Freeway, overturned and burst into flames on Burbank Boulevard Saturday, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

    A lime-green 2008 Porsche veered off the westbound side of the freeway near Shoup Avenue and came to rest against a parking structure in the 22100 block of Burbank just after 2:30 a.m., according to CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos and a CHP sergeant who spoke to a Newsreel camera crew at the scene.

    The Porsche took at least a 30-foot drop, and cleared a six-foot chain link fence before crashing, an RMG News camera crew reported.

    Also set ablaze was a parked car that was struck in the parking structure, RMG reported.

    "It appears to be a solo-vehicle accident at this time," he said.

    The dead person's name was being withheld until his or her next of kin could be told about the crash.

    The German-made cars are known for their brawn. Most models are two-seaters with high-performance,12-cylinder engines and cost more than $100,000.

    No one with the Los Angeles Fire Department was available for comment

    Its like 11 mins. from where I live! I saw it on the news the night it happened. A friend of mine said that he met the guy at the weekly car show on Valley Circle a few days before the accident. He said the car was a lime green Gallardo LP560. He said the guy had his hair dyed the same color green to match the car, and was wearing a sport-coat with lime green trim when he met him! I was looking at that car at Callabasas Lamborghini about 3 weeks ago when they first got it in.
