A Braselton woman was ejected from a minivan and killed after the vehicle hit an embankment Wednesday, Nov. 30, in Hall County, according to authorities.

The rear-seat passenger of a Dodge Caravan, Silvia Franco Mireles, 69, was killed in the crash.

Georgia State Patrol troopers responded around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday on Tanners Mill Road.

Jose Luis Estala, 67, of Gainesville, was driving the Dodge Caravan south on Tanners Mill Road on a right-hand curve.

State patrol said Estala was driving too fast on the wet road and traveled off the road’s shoulder, hitting an embankment head-on.

The Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team is working the crash, and charges are pending.
