AUSTIN, Texas - A woman has died from injuries she sustained in a crash in early November, says the Austin Police Department.
APD says that just after 3 a.m. Nov. 7, a grey Toyota Tundra was traveling south on S. 1st Street and a Dodge Ram was traveling west on Annie Street.
At this time, it's unknown which truck ran the red light, but APD says the traffic violation caused a crash between the two vehicles. After the impact, the Dodge Ram struck a rock wall and rolled, coming to rest on its roof. Occupants of both vehicles were taken to nearby hospitals for their injuries.
One of the passengers in the Dodge Ram, 58-year-old Linda Cadena, was transported to Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas where she died on November 20 from injuries sustained in the crash.
APD says that this is an ongoing investigation.
