A mom dies after her disabled car is struck along the 60 Freeway

A 31-year-old Perris woman died on the evening of Sunday, March 25 when her Ford Taurus was struck along a portion of the 60 Freeway that runs through Chino. The incident occurred just before 7:45 p.m. in the eastbound shoulder of the freeway, just before the Central Ave. exit.

Both police and Chino Valley Fire District paramedics were dispatched to scene after calls started flooding in reporting a two-car crash along that stretch of the freeway. As the investigation into what had occurred began, police found out that the female motorist's vehicle had begun experiencing mechanical troubles, so she decided to pull over onto the freeway's right shoulder.

After pulling over, she reportedly began making calls for someone to come help with her car. A California Highway Patrol (CHP) spokesperson notes that it wasn't long after she called for help that a 19-year-old motorist driving a Jeep Cherokee approached. He swerved into the shoulder where the woman's vehicle had been stalled, crashing into it.

The woman's 10-year-old daughter was in the front passenger seat at the time the car was struck. Her 4-year-old son was seated in the rear seat right behind his sister. The two kids, their mom and the Jeep's driver were all transported from the crash scene to Chino Valley Medical Center with unspecified injuries.

A spokesperson at the San Bernardino County Coroner's office later released a statement acknowledging that the young mom had succumbed to her injuries upon her arrival at the hospital.

The investigation into the cause of the crash is still ongoing. A CHP spokesperson notes that they haven't yet ruled out alcohol, speed, drugs or reckless driving as having contributed to causing it.

Car crashes resulting in either serious injuries or deaths can leave survivors and family members with significant medical bills and funeral costs. When children lose a parent in a car crash because of someone else's negligence, they don't just lose their physical companionship but also their means of support. This can greatly impact their future.

If your kids have lost a parent far too soon due to their involvement in a car crash, then a San Bernardino wrongful death attorney can advise you of different types of damages that can be recovered in a motor vehicle accident case.
