San Marcos Police, EMS and Fire Department responded to a traffic accident May 3 at approximately 10:45 p.m. that resulted in one fatality. The incident consequently closed IH35 for a few hours.

In heavy rain, a 2010 Honda and a 2014 Ford F150 were involved in an accident. Before first responders arrived, witnesses reported that the female passenger inside of the Honda was unresponsive and CPR had taken place.

Once first responders arrived, Pedro Roman-Abarca, 68, the driver of the Honda, was taken to Central Texas Medical Center. Roman-Abarca did not survive the incident and was pronounced dead by Justice of the Peace Maggie H. Moreno.

First responders administered CPR and medical care to the driver of the Ford, Enedina Roman, 62. Roman was then taken to Seton Medical Center Center Hays, where she still remains, and underwent surgery. She was uninjured.

A written statement on behalf of the San Marcos City Government stated that the SMPD Collision Investigation Team responded to the incident. Their investigation revealed that the Ford was driving southbound in the center lane of IH 35, while the Honda was driving southbound in the left lane of IH 35 and passed the Ford.

It is believed that, throughout the heavy rain, the driver of the Honda lost control of the vehicle, causing the Honda to hit the center concrete divider. This caused the Honda to spin back into the path of the incoming Ford vehicle.

After the collision, both vehicles were towed, and IH 35 was closed for approximately two hours at Exit 202. Traffic was redirected to Exit204A.

Additional information is unknown at this time and will be provided as the investigation continues.
