A woman who was injured in a Nov. 3 crash involving an alleged intoxicated driver has died, and San Jacinto traffic investigators were considering additional charges, a sheriff's sergeant said Thursday.
Two people were injured in the two-vehicle crash early Sunday and Yadira Gonzalez, 38, of Murrieta, was arrested at the scene, according to the Sheriff's Department.
One of the injured, Emma Araujo, 40, of Long Beach, was pronounced deceased late Nov. 4 at Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley, according to the coroner.
"It is very likely additional charges will be filed, but we have to consult with the district attorney," sheriff's Sgt. Robert Himmelberg said Nov. 7 in a phone interview with Patch.
Gonzalez, who was free on bail, could not be reached to comment for this report.
Deputies responded to the crash about 1:45 a.m. Nov. 3 on Ramona Expressway, west of Lyon Avenue, sheriff's Sgt. Scott Burns said in a statement.
"Upon officers' arrival, they found a Chrysler PT Cruiser and Toyota Sienna with traffic collision damage," Burns said. "The driver and a passenger of the Toyota suffered major injuries and were transported to local hospitals."
The Chrysler, driven by Gonzalez, had been traveling east on Ramona Expressway, Burns said.
"The Chrysler entered a construction area and collided with an Arrow Board Trailer," Burns said. "The impact of the collision forced the trailer into the westbound lane of Ramona Expressway, where the trailer collided with the Toyota traveling westbound."
