SAN ANTONIO -- A Brandeis High School student who was injured in a crash along Loop 1604 Tuesday has been taken off of life support.
Lorraine Efron, who is an attorney for the family of 16-year-old Gina Rodriguez, told News 4 the following:
"Gina was removed from life support in the middle of the night. The family is by her side at University Hospital."
Efron confirmed this means Rodriguez is currently breathing on her own and has not passed away.
Rodriguez was one of four Brandeis students who were in a Mitsubishi Lancer that collided with a truck on the access road of Loop 1604 on the Northwest Side around 11:45 a.m. Tuesday.
All four were taken to University Hospital. One of the students, 17-year-old Gabriela Lerma, died from her injuries. The driver, 19-year-old Antonio Flores and his front seat passenger, 18-year-old Monique Castaneda, are in the stable condition.
Police continue to investigate whether the driver was drag racing.
