Child killed in vehicle rollover

Monday, July 7 — A Saturday, July 5 vehicle rollover claimed the life of an unrestrained 3-year-old child.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Jamie Sauce, 32, of Stockton, California was driving a 1996 Chevrolet Astro van southbound on Highway 395 south of the Secret Valley rest area near Ravendale. Traveling with her were Florencio Sierra, 32, and four juveniles ages 1 through 7.

The accident occurred at approximately 6:42 a.m. when the tread of the right rear tire of the vehicle separated. In response, Sauce applied the brakes causing her to lose control of the vehicle. The van traveled off of the west roadway edge and descended a steep embankment where it overturned, ejecting several of the unrestrained juvenile occupants.

The 3 year old was pinned under the vehicle, and succumbed to her injuries despite life saving efforts on the part of CHP personnel.

The CHP takes this opportunity to reinforce the importance of wearing your seatbelt and making sure child passengers are properly restrained in a child safety seat. For more information, or for assistance with your child safety seat, contact your local CHP office.

I don't see how a parent can say it was a mistake. a child depends on a parent to protect them and make them safe. in this case the parent made a choice not to place a child in a car seat and that isn't a mistake as the law has always requiered saftey seats. every time someone puts there child in a vehicle without. a saftey seatrhey put there lives at risk and there is NO MISTAKE THERE

Very sad. My brother-in-law, and his wife are the ones who pulled over to help. Very sad,and devastating.
I think the death of a child is punishment enough. Personally I would rather go to jail,then lose a child. :sad:
