I-35 Crash Claims Life of Democratic Fundraising Exec

An 18 wheeler accident on I-35 in Waxahachie claimed the life of the executive director for a democratic fundraising group in Austin, officials reported.

The director was identified as 59-year-old Grace Ann Garcia, who was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a member of her staff, police said.

According to reports, Garcia was killed when an 18 wheeler rear-ended the vehicle she was riding in. The passenger vehicle was stopped in traffic on Interstate 35 when the semi-truck smashed into the back of it, authorities noted.

The driver of the passenger vehicle was transported to a local hospital, where their condition was listed as serious and they were housed in intensive care.

The truck accident in Waxahachie occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, police reported.

Officials are still investigating the accident and what may have prompted the driver of the big rig to rear-end the passenger vehicle.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Grace Ann Garcia.
