On Friday, Nov. 1, at 8:38 p.m., Taylor police responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision involving three vehicles in the 1100 block of South Main Street.
The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2009 Honda Van, driven by Glenda Louise Werth, 59 years of Pflugerville, was traveling north bound on south Main Street when she stopped the vehicle and began backing the vehicle up in reverse. Hunter Werth, 20 months, of Hutto was a passenger in the vehicle. A 2008 Toyota SUV driven by Madison Plinkinton, 23 years of Lexington, was also traveling northbound when it struck the Honda van from behind, causing the van to enter the southbound lane into oncoming traffic, where it was then struck head-on by a 2006 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Abel Estrada-Macias, 22 years of Taylor.
Glenda Werth was pronounced dead on the scene. Hunter Werth was transported to Dell Children's Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Estrada-Macias was transported to Seton Williamson County Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Plinkington was uninjured.
This is the third fatal collision in Taylor for this year.
The investigation continues.
