Floydada Teen Dies in Car Wreck

A 15 year-old Floydada girl who wrecked a stolen car early Monday morning has died from her injuries. According to DPS, Oralia Garza was southbound on FM 651 about 10 miles north of Crosbyton when she lost control of the stolen 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.

First Responders arrived at the scene just after 3:00 a.m. on Monday, but they believe the wreck actually happened much earlier. Garza was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown 20 feet from the car.

Aerocare transported her to University Medical Center where she died on Thursday. DPS believe the teen was driving the stolen car at a high rate of speed, and they say alcohol was a factor in the wreck. Officials cannot verify if Garza actually stole the car.
