A car crashed into a Mountlake Terrace home Monday morning, leaving the woman driving the car dead and the house ablaze.
The crash occurred around 7:45 a.m. near 220th Street and 44th Avenue West. A woman who had been in the house was taken to a hospital for smoke exposure as a precaution, according to fire officials.
Officials will identify the driver, a woman in her mid-20s, once her family is notified, said Mountlake Terrace Police Chief Pete Caw. Detectives are still working to determine what caused the crash.
The car also crashed into a power pole and went through a fence, according to officials.
