The Mathis Police Department has released the name of the woman who died following a fatal car accident on Interstate 37 last Saturday.
The fatality was identified as 32-year-old Sonya Estrella Munoz. She was a resident of Corpus Christi, Texas.
According to Texas Department of Public Safety, a 2004 Ford Expedition, driven by Sonya Estrella, had been traveling along the northbound lanes of I-37 when its tires blew out causing it to overturn and landed on a ditch. The impact of the collision ejected Munoz and two children from the vehicle.
Three children in the vehicle, identified only as a one-year-old boy, three-year-old girl, and nine-year-old girl, were rushed to Driscoll Children’s Hospital with critical injuries. The fourth passenger, a 16-year-old boy, was rushed to Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital in Corpus Christia for treatment. His condition remains unknown.
The investigation is underway.
We believe that when someone loses a loved one from a car accident, they do not only suffer emotionally but financially as well. If you or your loved one is a victim of a car accident caused by wrongful actions or due to negligence, you may have the right to file for legal claims. Most of the time, families who are left behind after a tragic loss are not aware of their rights and the legal processes needed to obtain fair and just compensation. In times like this, you would need a professional who can provide you with all the support you need as you go through this difficult time.

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of the day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.
