The boyfriend of a Mesa teenager who died in a fatal one-car accident on the San Tan Loop 202 Saturday said she was just a typical teenage girl who loved movies, music and fashion.
Michelle Miranda, 14, was the passenger in a car that blew a tire around 6 p.m. on the 202 between the Recker and Power exits, said the Department of Public Safety officials.
Her mother, Myra Ilagen-Miranda, 54, also of Mesa, was driving when the rear tire on the passenger side blew out. DPS said she braked, which caused the car to turn sideways and slide into the dirt median.
The car continued sideways and rolled. It landed on its roof, sliding into the cable barriers, said DPS.
DPS said Miranda was not wearing her seatbelt and she was ejected from the car and pronounced dead on the scene.
Ilagen-Miranda was airlifted to a local hospital, but her condition is unknown. She was wearing a seatbelt, said DPS officials.
Miranda's boyfriend, Donovan Magaña, 17, of Mesa said the victim was an understanding person who "always did what was best for other people."
To help raise money to cover the funeral costs, Magaña, friends and family are putting on two car washes over the weekend to raise money for the services.
The first will be held at 7 a.m. Saturday at a Mesa Jack in the Box on the southeast corner of Power and McDowell roads. The second will be at 7 a.m. Sunday at a Mesa McDonald's on the northwest corner of Main Street and Gilbert Road.
