CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) – There were some scary moments for a 19-year-old driver in Chula Vista, who narrowly escaped a raging car fire Tuesday.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday at Second Street and Sea Vale Street.

Chula Vista Firefighters say the driver fell asleep at the wheel and ran into a parked truck, just a few blocks away from her home.

The driver was not hurt. She ran home and brought her mom back to the scene.
