Even though California is known for its beautiful weather, there are still elevations, especially mountain cities that get snow and ice.
On a day, not too long ago, two people were killed and two critically injured when the driver, a 45-year old Sugarloaf woman, of an SUV lost control on an icy part of Highway 38 near Big Bear City. The SUV spun around and landed on its side, slamming the roof into a tree on the shoulder of the highway.
There was a man riding in the front passenger seat and two passengers in the back seat. The driver and the passenger in the front died at the scene. The two back-seat passengers were critically injured and taken to Loma Linda Medical Center for treatment.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the accident.
