Authorities are searching for three people who fled the scene of a fatal single-vehicle rollover wreck along FM 2001 just outside of Buda early Sunday.
The incident happened around 3 a.m. Feb. 24 in the 3100 block of FM 2001 near Windy Hill Road, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) spokesperson. When authorities arrived, they found Maria Elena Rosales Mendez, 27, of Buda, dead at the scene. Hays County Justice of the Peace Scott Cary pronounced Rosales Mendez dead and ordered an autopsy.

A description of the driver and the two other passengers who fled the scene is unknown.
