(SALADO) Authorities confirmed Tuesday that a teenage girl injured in a weekend crash in Salado has now died.
Department of Public Safety said Tuesday that 13-year-old Monica Rodriguez of Belton died Monday at Scott & White Children`s Hospital in Temple.
Troopers said the 4-vehicle accident happened Sunday on I35 in Salado near mile marker 279. Investigators believe a 2005 Honda, a 2002 Subaru, and a 2003 Honda were stopped on the interstate because of a minor wreck when a 2010 Chevy failed to notice they were stopped, slamming into the 3 vehicles. Rodriguez was 1 of 8 people injured in the accident. The other 7 were treated at the scene or taken to area hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.
