Laura Melgar Romero Killed in Car Accident in Austin, TX

Austin, TX -- February 11, 2023, Laura Melgar Romero was killed due to an accident where a vehicle ran her over along Lamar Boulevard.

Investigators said that the incident happened at around 1:00 a.m. at the intersection of North Lamar and Rutland Drive.

Preliminary details indicate that Laura Melgar Romero was a passenger in Ford Expedition coming out of a parking lot off the corner of the intersection. Somehow, the door "flew open", and Melgar fell out of the vehicle into the roadway. There, the vehicle ran her over. The vehicle then left the scene, police say.

Melgar succumbed to fatal injuries due to the crash. Police did not say if the driver was apprehended, but they seem to know the vehicle involved in the accident. Additional details are unavailable right now.

I didn't want to comment on this incident before police released more details about it, given the unusual nature of the initial reports. These new details, however, do little to shed light on what went wrong. Why did the door "fly open?" Why did the driver leave the scene? What do police plan to do going forward? Is someone going to be held accountable for this, or is this all some freak occurrence?

Whatever happened here, a woman lost her life. That alone means her loved ones deserve an explanation. I can only hope authorities are telling them more than they are the public.
