DEVORE – The mother and son who died as a result of a tragic 15 freeway crash in Devore Saturday night have been identified. The boy, 9-year-old Dana Cox and his mother, 30-year-old Danielle “Buffy” Harris were heading northbound on the I-15 freeway on Saturday night when they crashed into the back of a disabled semi-tractor tow truck.
The semi-tractor tow truck, according to witness reports, was in the #4 lane near Glen Helen Parkway with no hazard lights
on. The two were found unresponsive by those who stopped to provide assistance. Soon after, the California Highway Patrol and paramedics from the Fontana and San Bernardino County Fire Department arrived.
Danielle was pronounced dead at the scene, Dana was unresponsive but rushed to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries shortly after. Friends and family describe Danielle as a loving mother, who worked hard to provide for all of her son’s needs. They said that Dana played football, loved to joke around and loved his mother very much.
