A 42-year-old Chula Vista woman and a 1-year-old boy from Florence, Ariz., suffered major injuries after a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 8.
A press release from the California Highway Patrol's El Centro office states the accident occurred about 12:30 p.m. Monday on Interstate 8 near Dunaway Road.
The press release states Beverly J. Jimenez was heading east on Interstate 8 at the posted speed limit when she allowed her pickup to drift into the center divider.
Jimenez tried to steer back onto the roadway but overcorrected and her truck overturned several times. The vehicle came to rest on the south dirt shoulder, trapping Jimenez and the boy.
