Roseanne Alaniz Killed in Allege Hit-and-run Accident in Guadalupe County, TX
Guadalupe County, TX — March 31, 2023, Roseanne Alaniz was killed following an apparent hit-and-run accident at around midnight on F.M. 1978.
Authorities said in their statements that the accident happened in the 4500 block of Farm-to-Market 1978, which appears to be just outside of San Marcos east of Highway 123.
According to officials, 39-year-old Roseanne Jeanette Alaniz was walking at the time along the eastbound lane of F.M. 1978, While there, police say that a Chevy Silverado also going eastbound struck Alaniz, then left the scene.
Alaniz sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash but apparently was not found until hours after the crash. Authorities say they later located the pickup, and charges may be pending against the alleged runaway driver.
If the allegations here are true, then I hope authorities are doing everything in their power to see the person responsible faces consequences for their actions. Leaving the scene of an accident is bad jenough on its own, but are they ensuring they find out why the driver fled? Investigations can often show there were serious mistakes a runaway driver was trying to hide, such as warrants, drunk driving, or drugs. Could the same be true here?
