Hit-and-run claims teen’s life

Samantha Garza never returned home after attending a Halloween party held on Saturday night, October 27.

The 19-year-old, a recent graduate of Southside High School, was fatally struck by a hit-and-run driver on FM 476 near Adcock Rd. in northwest Atascosa County.

While family and officials are uncertain why she was walking on the road, a passerby noticed her body and called 911.

Evidence collected at the scene points to the make and model of the vehicle in question, a Pontiac G6 manufactured 2005-2010. This vehicle of interest should have sustained front-end damage.

If anyone should have information on the vehicle or possible witnesses, they should contact Trooper Jeffrey Denman at the Atascosa County DPS office at 830-769- 9345.
