Bloomington, California (June 25, 2018) – Local news sources reported that three people were killed, one injured during a deadly car accident on Slover Avenue, near Locust Street. The incident took place at approximately 8:30 AM on June 24, 2018. The San Bernardino County coroner’s office identified the deceased victims as 20-year old Angel Jaureguis, 17-year old Jose Manuel Jaureguis, and 13-year old Andrea Jaureguis. Authorities also identified the living victim as 49-year old Maria Luna Jaureguis, the mother of all three of the deceased.
California Highway Patrol reported that Jaureguis and her children were walking down Slover Avenue. At the same time, 19-year old Leonardo Bravo was driving his Dodge Challenger at high speed eastbound. Eventually, Bravo lost control and swerved the Dodge onto the sidewalk. Without warning, he struck the family before slamming into a nearby wall.
Sadly, the three Jaureguis children suffered from traumatic injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. At the same time, paramedics transported Maria Luna Jaureguis to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, where she received treatment for non-life threatening injuries.
CHP confirmed Bravo did not flee the scene of the crime and provided necessary information to the police. Authorities have not revealed if he sustained any injuries from the crash.
Reports indicate funeral expenses for the deceased Jaureguis children will be raised via a GoFundMe Page. As of now, the investigation is ongoing.
