It appears that an 18-wheeler ahead of Medina was "halfway on the road and shoulder to let vehicles pass." Details also suggest there was another vehicle on the shoulder. Medina's vehicle may have been passing on the left when the two vehicles collided.

Due to the crash, Medina had what were called incapacitating injuries. No one else seemed to be hurt. The cause of the crash cannot be confirmed at this time.

Commentary on Maria Rodriguez Medina 18-wheeler Accident in Bastrop County

There's a lot to be desired in terms of clear answers here. Why was the tractor-trailer on the shoulder? Why does another vehicle being on the shoulder change things? Was the 18-wheeler moving back to the left while the victim tried to pass? Were there other drivers who saw what happened? Did the victim get to tell her side of the story?

If nothing else, this is likely another example of police not being thorough enough in their initial investigations. Perhaps they were ultimately able to get the full story, but it wouldn't be the first time further investigations showed police missed something crucial. Perhaps more thorough investigations will be necessary to finally get some clear answers here.
