Two children not wearing seatbelts suffered major injuries in a two-car crash Oct. 26 near Wickman Elementary School in Chino Hills. 

A medical helicopter landed on the school’s playground shortly after the 8:03 a.m. crash to take the 13- and 9-year-old boys to Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital, said Detective Kyle Glazer.

A gray Nissan Altima, driven by a 37-year-old woman and carrying the two boys, rear ended a white BMW that was stopped on Soquel Canyon Parkway and Mindenvale Parkway. The BMW was driven by a 49-year-old female. 

She was the only person in the BMW.

“The two adult drivers were transported for minor injuries,” Detective Glazer said. 

The crash was witnessed by dozens of Wickman parents and students during the morning drop off.

“Investigators believe the driver and the juvenile occupants in the Nissan Altima were not properly seat belted, resulting in the injuries,” Detective Glazer said.

He believes excessive speed contributed to the cause of the crash.

Anyone with information can call Chino Hills Police at 364-2000.
