Related Story: Accident Victim Dies

A third victim died Monday after suffering injuries in an April [1996] car accident that occurred as four elderly women rode together to church.

Margaret Hannsz, 82, of Lubbock died Monday in Horizon Specialty Hospital, where she had been since her weeks of treatment at University Medical Center following the wreck.

Hannsz, Geraldine Holtkort, 80, and Agnes Roberson, 81, were critically injured in the April 29th wreck, which also seriously injured Ruth Nutt, the 82-year-old driver of the four-door Saturn the group was riding in.

Holtkort and Roberson died of their injuries a few days after the accident. The driver of the second car, 21-year-old Shawna Arriaga, was not injured in the collision.

A [Lubbock] county grand jury indicted Arriaga on May 22 on two counts of criminally negligent homicide in connection with the wreck.

The collision occurred as Arriaga, traveling west on 24th Street [in Lubbock], collided with the passenger's side of the Saturn, which was traveling north on Avenue S.

The intersection is controlled by a stop sign on 24th Street. Arriaga told officers she had been experiencing brake problems shortly before the crash.

Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. today in First Baptist Church [Lubbock].
