A horrific accident in the early hours of Sunday found three people engulfed in flames after a driver slammed his BMV into a tree at a high speed then hurtled through the front window of Reno’s Pizzeria on Studio City’s Ventura Blvd. The car sheared a natural gas line and burst into flames, killing two twenty-something men and their female companion. Authorities believe the trio had just left a 21st birthday party at fancy nearby Russian restaurant, Romanov, and that the driver was drunk. [Patch; Earlier]
