According to Lerma’s preliminary investigation, Barker was attempting to cross the southbound lanes of U.S. 87 from S.H. 97 East in a 1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88 sedan when she drove into the path of a southbound 2006 Ford F-350 pickup truck being driven by 52-year-old Mario Salazar Aguilar of Stockdale.
