Three children were injured and lost their mother after a deadly head-on collision in Moreno Valley on Tuesday morning, January 19.
The accident took place on Gilman Springs Road, east of Alessandro Boulevard, at approximately 7:00 a.m.
A sedan reportedly crossed over the double yellow lines and clipped a box truck before crashing head-on into another vehicle occupied by three children.
Emergency personnel later arrived at the scene to extricate one woman who was trapped in the wreckage. The woman was rushed to an area hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately, she was later pronounced dead.
Her three children sustained minor injuries from the accident. They were strapped with seatbelts in their car seats when emergency personnel found them. The driver of the sedan was seriously injured from the accident. He is currently undergoing surgery.
Local authorities are currently investigating the case. They will attempt to determine the cause and the liability in the accident.
Fatal Car Accident Statistics
Approximately six million car accidents occur annually in the U.S., with around 37,000 motor accident-related deaths each year. California is a hotbed for car accidents as the population keeps growing every year, so does the number of motorists on the roadway.
Car accidents are also one of the leading factors of injury deaths in California. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017.
