As paramedics were preparing to take her to Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, to be treated for her injuries, she reportedly made mention of her Santa Ana hotel room and her two children, leading police to believe "a crime might have occurred," Starn told KABC TV.
Officers then smashed a window to break her out of the car. They found a propane tank in the front passenger area of the car, according to KABC TV.
Edge was driving a car with a Georgia license plate, according to KABC TV. It is unclear why she and her children were in California. She is due in court Tuesday for an arraignment.
While police said no weapons were found at the scene, the children's cause of death is under investigation and is being treated as a homicide.
