City News Service

(CNS) – A woman who died in a single-vehicle rollover crash in Desert Hot Springs was identified Thursday as a 22-year-old resident of Cathedral City.

On Wednesday, the Riverside County fire Department arrived at the scene of a crash in the 35900 block of Dillon Road, where a Nissan Altima had overturned multiple times, ejecting the driver and a female passenger.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Corner Office identified her as Desiray Ramirez.

Ramirez’s passenger was transported to a nearby hospital by helicopter, according to officials.

Neither occupant had been wearing a seat belt, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Jackie Quintero.

Ramirez was southbound on Dillon when she entered the northbound lane to pass a slower vehicle, then lost control in an attempt to avoid an oncoming vehicle, according to Quintero.

It was not immediately clear whether alcohol/drugs was a factor in the crash.
