Tais Hinojosa, a 2018 graduate of Robstown High School and a freshman at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, was killed Sunday when the truck she was riding in was rear ended on Interstate 35 in San Antonio.

It is believed the driver of the vehicle that rear ended the one occupied by Hinojosa had bent down to retrieve something from the passenger floorboard. Hinojosa was taken to University Hospital, where she later died of her injuries.
