Gabriela Rojas Killed in Accident Falling Out of Car on Galveston Road in Houston, TX
UPDATE (March 3, 2023): Details from county officials identify the woman killed in the accident as Gabriela Rojas. It also appears someone has DWI charges pending in connection with the incident. Frankly, it doesn't surprise me to see allegations like these after police already mentioned looking into alcohol as a possibility, not to mention the unusual nature of the accident itself. If their allegations prove to be true, my hope is steps continue to be taken to ensure any issues that led to this woman's death reach and adequate conclusion for her loved ones.
Houston, TX -- February 8, 2023, a woman was killed after an accident where she fell out of a moving vehicle on Galveston Road.
Initial details about the crash say it happened late Wednesday in the area of Galveston Road and Edgebrook Drive.
According to preliminary statements, a pickup was traveling along the road when a woman riding as a passenger in the vehicle fell out into the roadway. That woman ultimately succumbed to fatal injuries. Police have not confirmed other details at this time but say alcohol was being investigated.
It's awful anytime there's a fatal accident, but it's always more awful when there aren't clear answers for the victim's loved ones. Hopefully authorities will be able to dedicate the time and personnel necessary to figure out what exactly happened here.
