SAN MARCOS – San Marcos Police have obtained surveillance photos of a box truck involved in a fatal crash on Jan. 3, 2022, which resulted in the death of 18-year-old Iliana Velez of Houston, TX.

The box truck collided with Velez’s vehicle on northbound I-35 near Wonder World Drive. After the collision, the box truck exited the interstate. Surveillance footage later shows the truck returning to the interstate and traveling northbound.

The surveillance photos, taken near the intersection of S Guadalupe Street and Knox Street following the crash, show the truck to have a white box with yellow on the bottom half of the doors and front fenders. The hood, roof, upper doors, and box of the truck are all white.

The cab of the truck has amber lights along the roofline, and there may be marker lights on the corners of the box. The truck appears to have writing on the box just behind the door on the driver’s side and writing or a shape just below the door’s handle.

There are only two axles on the truck, and the rear of the box is extremely overset of the rear tires. The rims on the tires appear to be white.

The San Marcos Police Department is investigating the crash as an Accident Involving Death, a felony level offense. Anyone with information about the truck or the identity of its driver is asked to contact Sergeant Myers at smyers@sanmarcostx.gov
