A grisly crime is unfolding in Santa Ana following the attempted suicide of a woman who revealed to authorities there were two dead children inside an area hotel room.

The unidentified woman tried to take her own life by crashing her car into poles at an electrical vault, according to City News Service. Costa Mesa police Sgt. Tim Starn tells the OC Register the vehicle was a sedan with Georgia plates.

Stern adds that the woman was very "feisty."

The woman told responding authorities about the children in the Santa Ana hotel room.
