     Updated--Simi Valley police say speed is a factor in the fatal crash early Tuesday morning that claimed one life and sent two other people to the hospital in critical condition.

   The person who died has been identified as 20-year-old Nicole Segura of Simi Valley.

   It was reported shortly after 1:30 AM as a vehicle into a house at Morley Street and Sycamore Drive.

   When firefighters arrived on scene, they found an overturned vehicle on the front lawn with one person ejected and two people trapped in the vehicle.

   One of the trapped victims, Segura, was pronounced dead at the scene.

   The other trapped person, the second female, was extricated.

   She, and the male who was ejected, were taken to the trauma center at Los Robles Medical Center in Thousand Oaks in critical condition.

   The three were in a two-seat sports car, a 2008 Nissan 350Z, and Simi police say it appears they were not wearing seat belts.

   The vehicle's registered owner is the 22-year-old Simi Valley man who was ejected from the vehicle and was in critical condition.

   There were three people in the house was hurt, but they were displaced by the crash.

   However, a 21-year-old man was in the bedroom when the car came crashing into and had he been in the bed he would have been seriously injured.

   Simi Valley Building and Safety responded to inspect the house.

   They indicated the structure would be yellow tagged which means the house is not inhabitable but limited access is allowed until repairs are completed.

    The crash shut down Sycamore Driver in both directions at that location.
