DESERT CENTER, CA (KCBD) -

Two members of a Lubbock family have been killed and two others were injured in a Monday afternoon car wreck in Desert Center, California.

Police say Kris Deleon, 39, of Lubbock was driving a 2005 Ford Explorer westbound on Interstate 10, east of Cottonwood Springs Road when the Ford's left rear tire blew out, and he lost control of the vehicle.

The Ford traveled to the right, off the roadway and rolled multiple times. During the collision, the right front and left rear passengers were ejected from the vehicle. 

Two passengers were ejected from the Ford and pronounced dead on scene, they have been identified as Kristen Duran Deleon and her nine year old son, Anthony. 

Kris Deleon has major injuries, and another five month old female passenger sustained minor injuries. They were both air lifted to the Riverside University Health System. 

The family's Go Fund Me account hopes to raise $8,000 to help with funeral arrangements: https://www.gofundme.com/kristen-deleon-and-family

This collision is still under investigation.

Police say alcohol and/or drugs do not appear to be a factor in the collision, but the two parties that died in the collision were not properly restrained in seatbelts. The two survivors were restrained properly.
