Authorities said that 62-year-old Maria Reyes was in a Toyota Tacoma traveling southbound along F.M. 2720. From oncoming lanes, authorities said that a Kia Optima began driving on the wrong side of the road, resulting in the vehicles colliding head-on.

Due to the collision, Reyes sustained injuries described as incapacitating. The other driver reportedly died. Right now, there is no confirmed cause for the accident. Authorities mentioned fatigue as a possible factor, but that could simply be speculation as it's quite common. However, whether or not authorities have been able to investigate other possibilities remains to be seen.

For example, I've seen no public statement on a toxicology test result. Months following a crash, authorities should be able to know if drugs or alcohol were factors in a deadly crash. That would be especially important to consider after an evening crash on the weekend. Is there any particular reason authorities have been somewhat reserved in their reporting of this event?
