DESERT HOT SPRINGS, California (May 16, 2013) – A mother was killed and her two young boys were injured Wednesday afternoon in a single-vehicle rollover crash at Palm Drive just south of Dillon Road, according to a press release issued by the CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department. The coroner later identified the woman as Eleuteria Leon Leon, 24, of Desert Hot Springs. She was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Fire fighters who responded to the rollover crash found the Leon had died at the scene of the accident possibly the result of a flat tire. Her two children, boys ages 18 months and two years old, were taken out of their car seats by two passersby. The boys suffered non-life threatening injuries in the accident.
Paramedics transported the injured children to a local hospital by ground ambulance where they were listed with minor to moderate injuries.
“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort this woman’s family and friends as they cope with such an incredible loss,” Attorney West Seegmiller said. “The thoughts and prayers of our staff are with them as they try to piece together what happened and come to terms with her death.”
