EL PASO--- The nurse who stopped to save a woman from an accident, then was hit and killed in an accident minutes later, was laid to rest Friday.
Liz Gonzalez, 25, was buried at Mount Carmel Cemetery in the Lower Valley Friday morning.
Dozens of family, friends, and a handful of Sheriff's deputies grieved for the former El Paso County Detention Center nurse.
Tuesday, Gonzalez helped to pull a woman out of a car that slid and crashed near Airway and I-10 West. After pulling her out, Gonzalez was then hit by a Jeep SUV that also slid from the morning's icy conditions.
She is survived by her mother, Margarita Gonzalez, and siblings Erika and Hector.
