A home surveillance camera captured images of the crash, and showed what appeared to be a speeding vehicle. Residents in the neighborhood say this is a recurring problem.

"I'm uncomfortable. I don't feel safe here," said Jasmine Velasquez. "I've been here since 2012 and I can't tell you how many accidents there's been. It's really bad. I don't feel safe."

France Sun owns the apartment building, and echoed Velasquez's thoughts.

"As the owner, I am scared. I'm scared for the tenant that lives here. I'm scared for the whole building collapsing," she said. "It's extremely frightening. We're talking life or death here. Eventually, it's just a matter of time something else is going to come through. It's going to take a life."
