A trans woman from San Juan lost her life at 8 in the morning this Saturday in the Intensive Care room of the 'Enrique Vera Barros' Hospital in the capital of La Rioja, due to the harsh consequences she received when she was run over by a truck during the midnight.

As revealed by the newspaper 'El Independiente', the victim's name was Andrea López, she lived in Caucete and was 57 years old. The road accident occurred at the main entrance of the Francisco I settlement, located north of the capital of Rioja, and the first investigation hypothesis is that the driver of a Peugeot 504 truck, surnamed Reynoso and 19 years old, was traveling at high speed. speed and was suddenly dazzled by another vehicle.

For this reason, Reynoso made an evasive maneuver and ran over López, who was walking in the area, apparently as a sex worker. Neighbors in the area showed their indignation at the event and asserted that it occurred due to the lack of lighting, which is why they announced that they would hold a march next Wednesday at 2 pm, at the entrance to Route 5.
