Department of Public Safety Trooper, Gary Stiles, told the media that the Kia then went under the semi-trailer and Wendeborn was ejected from her car and was run over by a second 18-wheeler that also was northbound.

The Kia careened off the roadway on the southbound side and came to rest in a ditch, just a few feet north of Coryell County Road 196.

Witnesses who were at the scene of the accident later told Trooper Stiles that the Kia seemed to be driving erratically before the crash.

No other injuries were reported at the time of the accident.

The incident remains under investigation at this time.
