Family offering $25k reward in search of truck driver still missing after fatal hit-and-run 


The family of a motorist killed in a hit-and-run crash with a semi truck is now offering a large reward for any information that leads to the conviction of the truck driver. 

The accident claimed the life of an 87-year-old Soledad Rodriguez Gonzalez at 12:32 p.m. on November 9th in Andrews, Texas. 

According to Everything Lubbock, the accident occurred when a red SUV driven by 52-year-old Veronica Gonzalez heading eastbound attempted to pass a semi truck also heading eastbound on State Highway 176. As the SUV attempted to pass, the semi truck changed lanes, veering into the SUV. The SUV then skidded and rolled, ejecting Soledad from the backseat and leading to her death. 

Soledad was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the wreck. Veronica Gonzalez and another passenger, 18-year-old Alan A. Mota, were not injured in the crash. Both were wearing seatbelts. 

The semi truck did not stop for the wreck and continued east on Highway 176. The truck is believed to be a white rig with a flatbed, and was loaded with large pipe at the time of the incident. 

Now, Soledad’s family is offering a $25,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the conviction of the truck driver involved in the incident. 

“Our law firm was hired by the family injured in the crash,” said Partner attorney Noe Valles of Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Injury Lawyers.

“We are offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of the driver. We hope this reward can help identify and bring about answers for the family. If you have any information regarding the crash, please call our firm at 432-233-0121.”
