Teen Dies After Car Crashes into Church
   A 17-year-old girl died Sunday [March 24] when her car crashed into a church in the Arden-Arcade area, the California Highway Patrol said.
   Natalya P. Ostapenko, a graduate of Encina High School, was driving west on El Camino Avenue near Tamarack Way late Saturday when her car skidded out of control, officers said. The 1991 Honda Accord spun before smashing broadside into St. Philomene Church and School at 2320 El Camino Avenue.
   Ostapenko was taken to UC Davis Medical Center where she died at 12:16 AM.
   Accident investigators said Ostapenko was driving too fast on the road wet from a recent rain. They said she was wearing her seat belt, and there is no evidence that alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash.
