Waco, TX — Authorities in Waco have released the name of the woman who was killed on Tuesday afternoon in a fatal car accident. Melissa Ann Fields, 33, was killed on March 5, 2013 after her Hyundai Elantra was in an accident with Ford Expedition at Olive Avenue and 22nd Street at approximately 5:50 p.m.
Waco PD said that Fields was driving west along Olive Avenue on Tuesday afternoon in her Hyundai when she came upon Olive’s intersection with 22nd Street. A Ford Expedition headed north on 22nd Street then collided with her Hyundai after one of them apparently ran a stop sign.
