RIALTO (CBSLA.com) — Police say a mother of six and her fiance died Thursday in a tragic case of road rage.
Investigators say Yvette Pulido was behind the wheel when she became involved in a verbal altercation with another driver near Cactus Avenue and Alru Street.
Moments before the deadly crash, police say Pulido ran into another driver and then tried to escape at a high speed, losing control of the vehicle and slamming into a tree.
Her fiance, Martin Serrano, who was in the passenger seat, succumbed to his injuries.
Pulido’s one-year-old and six-year-old sons were also in the vehicle. The children were rescued from the wreckage using the Jaws of Life.
Pulido’s aunt, Maryann Espinoza-Ramirez, said they were a close-knit family.
“We’re still shocked about the whole incident,” she said. “It’s sad for the kids. Their mom’s not going to be there for them.”
No further information was available at press time.
