A 24-year-old Perris woman was arrested Sunday, April 15, on suspicion of drunken driving after overturning her SUV near Homeland and injuring herself and her two young daughters.

Floriceli Carol Sanchez-Reyes was arrested at Riverside County Regional Medical Center and booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility on suspicion of driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher, DUI causing bodily injury, child endangerment and driving without a license.

She remained there Tuesday with bail set at $50,000, according to online jail records.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Lassig, Sanchez-Reyes was driving her 2008 Honda CRV eastbound on State Route 74 approaching Vincent Avenue when she allowed her vehicle to leave the roadway, strike a fence and overturn.

Sanchez-Reyes' two daughters, ages 4 and 6, were not properly restrained in a child safety seat and both were injured. The 4-year-old suffered minor injuries while the 6-year-old suffered major injuries requiring emergency surgery. Sanchez-Reyes also suffered minor injuries.

All three were taken to the hospital and Sanchez-Reyes was arrested there.

"The California Highway Patrol reminds motorists not drink and drive and to always ensure all passengers are properly secured," Lassig said. "The California Highway Patrol can assist with the proper installation of child safety seats and, in some cases, even provide the seats at no cost. Contact your local California Highway Patrol office to schedule an appointment with a Child Seat Installation Technician."
