CALDWELL, TX- A driver died when her car crashed into a semi on Highway 36 while she was trying to pass another vehicle on Feb. 11th, KBTX reports.
Around 10:25a.m., Elizabeth Garcia, 23, tried passing a car on her side of the road. This caused her northbound 2016 Hyundai Accent to crash head-on with an oncoming semi that was traveling south.
