SDSU Female Killed When Car Hits Tree

A San Diego State University coed was killed early Thursday morning when her car hit a tree in the Scripps Ranch area of San Diego.

According to authorities, Jennifer Laurie Brainerd, 21, died at the scene after her 2001 Volkwagen slammed into a tree and caught fire. Brainerd was ejected from the car, according to police. The crash happened around 1:20 a.m. at Pomerado and Willow Creek roads.

Police said speeding appears to be a factor in the one-car accident.

Brainerd was reportedly driving home from work at Rock Bottom Brewery in La Jolla when she crashed.
