A 28-year-old woman and her 8-year-old daughter sustained injuries in a Los Angeles car accident after their car overturned on the freeway. According to a news report in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, the injury crash occurred the morning of March 30, 2011 on the 57 Freeway near Temple Avenue in Pomona. The woman was driving a Toyota Camry when for an unknown reason, she veered to the left. The car then rolled over several times before colliding with the center median. The woman sustained moderate injuries while her daughter suffered relatively minor injuries. Both were wearing seatbelts.
My heart goes out to the mother and daughter who have been injured in this rollover accident. I'm relieved that neither one of them sustained life-threatening injuries given the intensity of this accident. I wish the injured victims the very best for a speedy and complete recovery.
