SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a naked woman was behind the wheel of a car that crashed north of Los Angeles, killing a 6-year-old girl and injuring a 2-year-old.

The California Highway Patrol says the woman got into two crashes Monday morning in Stevenson Ranch, an unincorporated area near Santa Clarita. The second crash involved hitting a power pole.

KABC-TV says the two girls were in the back seat. Officials say Good Samaritans freed them from the wreckage as the car caught fire.

KABC-TV says the woman and the 2-year-old girl are hospitalized in stable condition.

Authorities say they believe the woman is the mother of the two girls but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Investigators are trying to determine if alcohol played a role in the crash.
