    MORENO VALLEY, Calif. -- A little California girl is expected to make a full recovery after surviving for nine days on dry noodles and Gatorade following a car crash that eventually killed her mother.

    A highway crew investigating a damaged guardrail accidentally found Ruby Bustamante, 6, (pictured, far left) and her deceased mother, Norma Bustamante, (pictured, left) inside their wrecked Ford Taurus on Tuesday.

    According to Officer Christopher Blondon, of the California Highway Patrol, the vehicle had landed in a remote area.

    "The car was approximately 150 feet over the side, down an embankment," Blondon said.

    Police said the 26-year-old mother survived for a time after the crash, doing her best to care for her daughter.

    In fact, the child was reportedly found underneath her mother's arm, holding her.

    Authorities said Ruby, who was hospitalized, is in remarkably good shape, despite being dehydrated, hungry and slightly disoriented when she was rescued.

    Officials said the Ruby was able to survive in fairly good health because her mother set out makeshift meals of dry Ramen noodles and Gatorade for her daughter before passing away.

    "So she had something to eat and some fluids to drink," Blondon said.

    An autopsy indicated Norma Bustamante likely died within minutes of the accident from blunt force trauma, but relatives said Ruby told them her mother survived for a couple of days after the crash.
