TracAn Marie Thienpont of Hondo was pronounced dead at the scene of a 1-car roll-over accident on FM 462 north of Hondo Creek Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Thienpont, 44, was driving a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder just over the county line into Medina County when the vehicle left the roadway.

No other cause of the accident had been determined at press time.

Thienpont was a nurse and was apparently on her way home.

The accident occurred around 11:50 am.
