At 8:45am a resident was driving her vehicle south on Michillinda Avenue from Sierra Madre Boulevard. When she attempted to slow her vehicle for the down grade she noticed her brakes were not working. She attempted a left turn onto Ramona Avenue in an attempt to slow the vehicle. By then, the vehicle was travelling too fast for the turn, ran off the roadway and into some shrubbery on the southeast corner. The driver was uninjured and no other objects were damaged.
