A speeding auto in Santa Ana, California went airborne early Sunday morning, causing it to crash into the second floor of an office building with two people inside of the vehicle.

The Santa Ana Police Department said that the driver was going at a very high rate of speed when they hit the center median.

Officers will submit a DUI/Narcotics case to the Orange County District Attorney's office, police said.

However, the women had to sit in a "family section" of the stadium so that they would be separated from the male spectators. The Saudi government said last week women would be allowed to attend a second match on Saturday and a third next Thursday.

Police say the driver was speeding and hit a center median before the vehicle became airborne and landed up in the office.

One of the people involved managed to get out, while the other was trapped inside for over an hour as authorities used a heavy piece of equipment to stabilise the wedged vehicle.

Authorities are working to assess the integrity of the building structure.

According to witnesses, the auto caught fire upon colliding with the building.

Upon impact, a fire broke out and was quickly extinguished.
