Student ejected from SUV and killed in accident

A 15-year-old girl is dead after she was thrown from an SUV in Texas. She was a student at San Marcos High School, and she was killed in the wreck on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017.

The authorities are reporting that it was a rollover accident, and two other students were also involved.

Reports indicate that the driver was a 16-year-old boy, the only one in the group old enough to have a full driver's license. There were two 15-year-old girls in the vehicle; one was sitting in the front next to the driver, and the other was sitting in the back. That vehicle was a 1996 Ford Explorer.

The group was heading down Highway 35 in the Explorer when it appears that the boy crashed into the center barrier. That threw the vehicle out of control, and it quickly flipped and rolled multiple times.

Riding in the front, one of the girls and the driver were able to avoid all serious injuries and walked away from the crash. However, the passenger in the back seat tragically passed away.

Police responded to the accident and shut down all of the lanes of Highway 35 running south for their investigation. These stayed closed for about four hours. As of the latest reports, the police have not given out the name of the girl who was killed, something they're often more careful to do when the victim is a minor.

Losing a loved one in an accident is heartbreaking, especially at a young age. It's important for families to know what rights they may have to financial compensation at this difficult time, which may at least reduce the burden of things like medical bills and funeral costs.
