On Jan. 10 at approximately 5 p.m., a fatal accident occurred off FM 3013 heading westbound.
Brenda Alvarez, 34, of Sealy, the driver of a 2008 Ford F250, traveled down FM 3013 following behind Eugenia Holland, 73, of Sealy, the driver of a 2007 Ford Taurus, and Valerie Ortiz, 24, also of Sealy, Holland’s passenger.
As Holland moved to the right to make a turn onto Lene Lane, Alvarez struck her vehicle from behind pushing the Taurus into a ditch off the side of the road. Alvarez’s F250 continued onward striking a tree on the left, driver’s side of her vehicle.
Holland died as a result of the accident.
