HORSESHOE BAY — A Llano County Grand Jury recently indicted an illegal alien in connection with the death of a Round Rock woman in a fatal head-on collision on Texas 71 in Llano County, documents revealed.

Pedro Ortiz Hurtado, 55, a Mexican national who listed his address as Round Mountain, faces a charge of intoxication manslaughter (with a vehicle), according to jail records.

After the indictment, he was booked Feb. 9 into the Llano County Jail, where he remains in custody, officials confirmed.

Texas Department of Public Safety investigators initially arrested Hurtado the day after the crash, which occurred at about 8:20 p.m. Nov. 1 three miles west of Horseshoe Bay.

Hurtado was taken Jan. 1 to the Burnet County Jail, where he has remained on the intoxication manslaughter charge as well as a U.S. immigration hold for being in the country illegally, according to jail records.

The DPS report stated that 66-year-old Edwina Turner, the driver of a 2014 Volkswagen, was traveling westbound on Texas 71 when a 2005 Ford F-250 pickup driven by Hurtado traveling east “crossed the yellow line” and collided with the Volkswagen, the DPS report stated.

Turner died at the scene.


And yet another example of how broken the system is!
