(LOS ANGELES) — One person was killed and eight others injured after a car plowed through a Los Angeles home during a bible study session Wednesday evening.

Police said the driver of the car is still on the loose.

The incident happened around 8 p.m., when a female driver sped through the neighborhood and crashed into the house where a group of 11 elderly people had gathered for a prayer meeting, according to police.

Footage from a KABC Los Angeles news helicopter showed a red sedan almost completely inside the Harbor Gateway home, where it apparently came to a stop.
