Officials reported that 21-year-old Lilibeth Toro and her unborn child died in a two-vehicle accident along the 3000 block of Highway 180 in Hudson Oaks, Texas.
Hudson Oaks police stated that at around 5:30 a.m., an eastbound Isuzu box truck broadsided an 18-wheeler that was attempting to back into a car dealership entrance.

Since details are limited at this time, we are unsure of the exact facts which led to this accident. However, the fault for this accident may be less clear than one would generally expect. It was reported that the driver of the 18-wheeler was attempting to back into the entrance of a car dealership, but reports do not indicate weather the trailer was blocking traffic or if it had suddenly moved into the roadway. We will provide more information as it becomes available.
