Woman killed in NPID accident identified by medical examiner

The accident began when one truck hit another.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A fatal traffic accident has closed northbound NPID lanes near Hwy. 77/Agnes Street until about 6 p.m., according to CCPD officials.

A woman, who has been identified by the Nueces County Medical Examiner as 31-year-old Stephanie Vallejo, was killed instantly after her silver four-door vehicle was involved in a series of crashes that started when a 37-year-old man driving a company truck failed to see a Scorpion construction truck, which was being used as a buffer against traffic, said Corpus Christi Police Department Capt. Timothy Frazier. 

The 37-year-old man's truck was then hit by the 31-year-old woman, who didn't see the stalled vehicle and rear-ended it. 

Frazier said the other people involved in the accident didn't have serious injuries.

This is a developing story.
