I saw this accident as i was driving home from Las Vegas last night. It must have just happened as I passed because no medical help was on scene. I did see two little children lying on the floor...please tell me they are ok. My heart is deeply saddened for the families of the victims. May god bless you all!

George was a very good person and loved his wife and grandchildren. May God keep his family and friends close and prayer for the grandchildren that are hospitalized. He will be missed by the PUSD family.

That stretch of highway seems to claim a life, or lives, every month or so. I'm so sad for you and your family. I hope the children survive with as little pain as possible, both physically and spiritually. I'm praying for them all now...

I worked with George at Garey High School and he was an amazing, fun spirited, and wonderful man. All of us here at Garey are mourning his loss and are all deeply sadden by his sudden death. We love you Perry! R.I.P. Condolences go out to his family. PUSD has lost an ANGEL!

Wonder if it was a tire or they just over corrected.It doesn't take much to flip these Suv's but it was a tragedy the way they died.Sympathy goes out to the family.Check your tires people ! I have seen so many with bald tires flying down the freeways.

Sadly, some of these "freak" accidents are attributed to a medical emergency causing the driver to become unresponsive, or otherwise unable to continue driving the vehicle. Sudden heart attacks, siezures, et al often are the root cause of such tragedies. I wish only the best to the families involved as this event will obviously affect multitudes of people throughout the local and distant communities.

I worked with Perry here at Garey High School and he will be greatly missed and so will his beautiful wife Clara. He worked here at Garey as Athletic Director, coached football in Vegas for about 10 yrs, and also worked as a football coach at Pomona High School which I also attended. My prayers are with the family and I will miss the talks we used to have and his funny em-mails. He was truly a great man, father and grandfather and cared for his co-workers. Rest in peace George and Clara, we will never forget you. Prayers for the family for strength and guidance.

I attend Garey, Im a Senior, and He would always tell us to take our hats off, or anything we weren't supposed to have, but he really cared about us and what he did, He will be missed. This is such a sad thing for Garey High and PUSD. He Won't be forgotten. Rest In Peace George and Clara, you will be missed, but not Forgotten.

I was on my way home from Vegas when I passed this accident. I have been so sad over it since then. I'm sorry to hear that 2 people died. From what people are writing about them, they sound like good people. It goes to show you that you just never know when your time will be. God bless the family.

My daughter was on her way back from arizona,and she saw the accident happen right in front of her. The ford explorer was traveling in the fast lane on the s.15 frwy,Clara was driving she tried to change lanes but didn't see a car that was beside her and she swerved to the left, she lost control of the vehicle and the cars that were in the lanes to the right of her all slowed down she glided across all lanes and flipped about 4xs. My daughter was traveling in the slow lane they pulled over right away and somebody was already pulling the 2 kids out of the vehicle.My daughter was coming back from putting a cross at the place where her father in law passed away in a similar accident.May God bless your family.

My heart and prayers are for the family that they get through this pain and sorrow they are all going through right now. I worked with Mr. Perry and I could not have asked for a better person to work with. I loved him so much like a dad because he was such a kind, loving and caring person. I just lost my mom, brother and grandma all within a month apart last year and he was the first person when I came back to work who was very concerned of how I was and gave me his big hug that always made me feel good. Now I won't have those hugs anymore so it is really hard for me but will try to continue on with his memories....R.I.P. Mr. and Mrs. Perry

It is said that the "Good Die Young," and Mr. Perry was a very good and kind-hearted man. I say that the "Good Lord Above" must have needed this good man because "when the roll was called up yonder," he, along with his wife, were called. My sincerest sympathy goes to the family during this time of sorrow.
