SD Crash Kills 2 Boys; Temecula Woman Unhurt

One boy was partially ejected, another ejected, in the crash on the southbound I-15, near Deer Springs Road.

A Temecula woman whose car was involved in a crash that killed two boys on the southbound I-15 in San Diego County Sunday came away unscathed, authorities said.

The 24-year-old woman – whose name was not immediately released – was driving a 2008 Scion on Interstate 15, near Deer Springs Road, when it and a minivan driving alongside collided, California Highway Patrol Officer Chris Parent said.

The minivan spun toward the median and overturned, ejecting one boy and partially ejecting another, killing them both, Parent said.

The Scion spun around and its driver brought the car to the center median, Parent said.

The minivan’s driver, who had seven passengers, suffered minor injuries and four of his passengers were also injured; all were taken to local hospitals, the CHP reported.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.

Suburban without front buckets seats 8, with bench seat in front 9. However, that last back seat seriously can only hold 3 very skinny people or small kids, or a mixture of. Three average size people arent going to work, and trying to even reach seat buckles and get them all buckled would be impossible, unless it was seated with all 3 small chldren. Minivans hold 8 or 9 with the different seat set ups if they come with a front bench seat. Horrible tragedy and again small children are thrown out and killed. RIP little men, condolences to your families. Who knows if they fell thru the seatbelts during the roll or werent strapped in at all. Was this a case of panic, turn that wheel too sharp and set that van into a roll? Probably :/ Could assume one went to change lanes not looking for the other, tapped, or scared the van driver. Very sad, and we were just talking about Suv's and rolls last week from the last accidents with a SUV and sedan, and drivers of both cars killed. Would like to hear who they determine was at fault here, speeds, etc.

This was such a tragedy, to loose your children at such an young age. The hurt and pain the parents, sisters and brothers, along with their relatives and friends will have to endure for the rest of their lives.. They all need our prayers of comfort and strength now. I know these baby boys are in the Wings of the everlasting righteous God, and they are safe in his arms. But the grief will always be there of lives taken so soon. Ps. 91:4. Please pray for the young drivers as well. God Bless. Min. Katrina

Seat belts always! The kids let the parents down (If they were alone) and the parents let the kids down if they were with them. Im not saying they got what they deserved, but they got what was expected based on their actions. My kids will not ever enter a car without a seat belt - EVER!

Also, when WE, and I say WE cause I do often too, move that shoulder one that is so annoying to the front or back of me so its not hindering my neck movement. I hate it, but I should not do THAT. I have always watched the kids to make sure they keep the straps over the shoulders as they can easily slide out of the lap belt in a roll over. Even young ones in a car seat take slide the shoulder straps off when they figure it out, have to watch my grandson constantly on that. :/ Alot of reasons they kids came out or partially out of the vehicle. God Bless those babies, such a sad thing I just cant stop thinking about.

these are the comments we need. NOT accusing and bashing people. I also pray for all the family and friends that are hurting today.
