A Van Nuys woman died when she was flung through the rear window of her car after it struck a tree Friday in Reseda, Los Angeles police said.

Andrea Lynn Galindo, 24, was driving south in the 6300 block of Lindley Avenue shortly before 3 a.m., Officer Stephen Lenker said. Her car veered off the road and jumped the curb, he said.
