A family is hoping to get answers after two of their loved ones died in a rollover accident in California.

Glendale residents Ivan Flores, 25, and 30-year-old Cherrelle Malloy were on the way to California for their annual summer vacation when Malloy lost control of her 2003 Jeep Liberty and was involved in a rollover accident.

Authorities say Malloy turned right causing her to lose control of her SUV before rolling several times and crashing into an embankment.

"They said the case has turned to criminal," said Malloy's sister Shante.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the couple crashed on Interstate 10 in Yucaipa. When officials arrived at the scene, it was discovered that Flores and Malloy were not wearing seatbelts and were both ejected from the car.

Malloy died at the scene and Flores was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries shortly after.

According to Shante, they family hasn't seen the police report. In fact, they didn't even know she died until Flores' parents call them.

"We're just trying to get answers," Malloy's sister Unique Ross said. "That's what we want — justice for our sister. If it was somebody who made her roll over or anything of that sort we just want them to pay for it."

It has been 11 days since the crash. Malloy's body is still in California pending an autopsy. 

The incident remains under investigation by CHP. Anyone with additional information is urged to call the San Bernardino CHP office at 909-383-4247.

Malloy’s family created a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising money for her two young children.

"The 11-year-old knows what's going on," Ross said. "The 3-year-old...she just keeps asking about her mom."
