Newspro

A rollover crash killed two adults and an unborn child in San Bernardino early Sunday, Dec. 22, 2013.

Two people died and a woman who was 19 weeks pregnant lost her unborn child following a rollover crash in San Bernardino early Sunday, officials said.

Police responded to reports of a car that went over the side of a steep hill in the 3800 block of Ridgeline Drive around 1 a.m., according to the San Bernardino Police Department.

A witness told police that a 2003 Nissan Altima was traveling north on Ridgeline Drive when the driver continued straight on a roadway that makes a slight turn. The car went up a curb and off the embankment, rolling over several times before coming to rest about 200 feet down in a ravine, officials said.

A 19-year-old woman who was 19 weeks pregnant was airlifted to a local hospital with major injuries, police said. Her unborn child did not survive, officials said.

Three people were ejected from the vehicle, including a 19-year-old Beaumont woman and a 24-year-old Fontana man who were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Their names have not yet been released.

The third person who was ejected from the vehicle, a 23-year-old San Bernardino man was taken to a hospital with multiple fractures to his spine and other major injuries, authorities said.

Another 19-year-old woman was taken to a hospital but did not appear to suffer any major injuries.

Police said evidence suggests that most of the car’s occupants were under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call Officer E. Thomas at (909) 384-5791.
