A 16-year-old girl was killed in her bed when a suspected drunk driver slammed into her apartment building shortly before 4am yesterday in Palmdale, Calif., police say. The 20-year-old driver has been arrested on charges of DUI and vehicular manslaughter, reports NBC. Police believe he missed a turn on his way home when his SUV plowed into the building at a speed witnesses say was around 80mph. Around half of the 11-unit complex was evacuated due to fear of leaking fuel.
In Sarasota, Fla., another driver has been charged with vehicular manslaughter after driving into a house early Saturday morning, killing a 62-year-old woman.

Elsewhere in Florida, nearly two dozen people were injured when a car crashed through the walls of a church in Fort Myers during an Easter service, CNN reports. Police say the driver has told them her brakes failed in the church parking lot and the incident appears to be a "very unfortunate accident rather than a criminal act."
