Seven-year-old Avery Fabela has passed away due to injuries sustained from a highway crash in San Antonio, Texas.

Details of the San Antonio Crash

The accident happened on U.S. Highway 90 near West Military on Saturday just before 6 P.M. According to witnesses, a speeding driver heading East burst a tire, rolled over a guardrail, and crashed into a taco truck, according to News 4 San Antonio.

Police found two adults and one child in the car. The female driver was alert and conscious when police arrived. The male passenger was unconscious but still breathing, and the 7-year-old was badly injured. They rushed them to the hospital, where the 7-year-old later died from her injuries.
