Woman killed in Echo Park car crash *

A woman was killed and another critically injured early this morning after their car crashed into a building on Sunset Boulevard one block west of Alvarado Street, reports CBS 2. The car smashed into the building containing a Subway sandwich shop and Lucy's laundry at about 2 am. The location, where Sunset Boulevard bends to the south, has been the scene of numerous accidents over the years.

A memorial of flowers, candles and balloons was taking shape Sunday afternoon a few feet away from the metal lamp post that was knocked down by the car and other accident debris.

* Update: The victim has been identified as Stephanie Silvestre, 21, of Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner.
