The Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office Wednesday identified the 88-year-old woman killed in a two-vehicle crash Monday as Thelma Autrey of La Marque.

Autrey was killed in a crash at the intersection of state Highway 3 and Ross Street at about 1:50 p.m. Monday, according to the La Marque Police Department.

Autrey was declared dead at the scene, police said.

Autrey was driving east through the intersection in a gold Chevy Malibu when she was struck by a white Dodge Caliber on the driver’s side door.

The driver of the Caliber might have run a red light, police said.

The highway was shut down in both directions while police investigated the crash. Officials haven’t announced any charges, but the crash is still under investigation, police said.
