FALFURRIAS, Texas — A Corpus Christi woman died in an accident near Falfurrias Monday, DPS officials said.
51-year-old Aida Marie Torres died when the vehicle she was in a passenger in hit an overturned F-350 towing a utility trailer on SH-285 approximately two miles east of Falfurrias in Brooks County.
After a preliminary investigation, DPS officials said a Chevy Trax was driving north on County Road 401 when the driver ignored a stop sign and hit the utility trailer the F-350 was carrying, which was traveling east on SH 285.
