Parker County woman killed in two-vehicle crash near Azle

A Parker County woman died Friday night after sustaining multiple injuries in a two-vehicle crash near Azle.

Sheila Vazquez, 54, died after her car hit another car along the 1400-block of Knob HIll Road in Reno, a small town just outside Azle and just beyond the Tarrant County line.

Vazquez died just after 10:15 p.m. Friday, before she could be transported to a hospital, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office. The collision occurred between Kelly Court and White Dove Street, less than a quarter mile from her home.

Both the driver of the second vehicle and a child passenger in Vazquez' vehicle sustained minor injuries, Reno Police Chief Timothy Holzschuh said.

No criminal charges were expected to stem from the crash, Holzschuh said.

The Briar and Reno volunteer fire departments merged to ensure coverage of rural communities, but the merger has also led to an increase in calls and staffing.
