A South Gate woman could face charges in the single-car crash that left two of her young children dead.
Two girls, ages 2 and 6, were killed Monday morning in a crash on the northbound Long Beach (710) Freeway, south of Imperial, and their mother, who was driving at the time of the 9 a.m. crash, could face charges, officials said.
A CHP news release reported the youngest girl as being 4 years old, but the girl's aunt told NBC4 News that the youngest victim of the crash was 2.
The girls’ mother was listed in critical condition Monday afternoon, according to Monica Posada with California Highway Patrol (CHP).
A 5-year-old boy was also listed in critical condition. An 8-year-old boy suffered minor injuries, Posada said. Both remained hospitalized Monday afternoon.
Officials say the group was wearing their seat belts when the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle and rolled over off the freeway, falling roof-first into a tree.
Charges are pending against the driver, according to a CHP official, who could not go into detail and added that this is a "delicate situation."
