A Bellflower woman who was not wearing a seat belt suffered major injuries Saturday when her sport utility vehicle flipped over on the Riverside Freeway, ejecting her, the California Highway Patrol reported.
Her two children, ages 1 and 3, were unhurt in the accident, which occurred about 1:30 p.m. on the westbound freeway at Weir Canyon Road.
The woman, 24, was traveling 55 to 60 mph when her 1994 Ford Explorer “experienced some type of tire failure,” officers said.
She was taken to Western Medical Center-Santa Ana. Her name was not released.
