On September 6, 2015, a car accident resulted in the loss of the life of Canyon High School student Brianna Rodriguez over the weekend. Two others were airlifted to a hospital in Comal County. Although the names have not officially been released by local authorities, community members, students, and other sources suggest that the individual who died in the accident and those injured may have been from Canyon High School. A truck driven by a man crashed struck two females in a vehicle. One was able to escape the vehicle, but the other was trapped inside and died once the vehicle caught on fire.
Once the flames were extinguishes, the local firefighters were able to remove the female victim from the vehicle. The passenger, along with the truck driver, were flown to a hospital in San Antonio, Texas in critical condition.
The truck driver struck several vehicles before stopping. The accident involved 10 other individuals, but each of them did not seek medical treatment. Some suggest that intoxication or alcohol was a factor in the accident, but the investigation is still underway and this allegation cannot be confirmed at this time.
The members of the community and Canyon High School students expressed their sympathy for the Rodriguez family. They mourned the loss of their fellow classmateand this was evident on social media websites such as Facebook.
If local law enforcement discover that the truck driver was in fact intoxicated or negligent in some way at the time of the accident, Rodriguez’s death may result in a wrongful death case.
