Austin, TX – 1 Killed and 2 Injured in Fatal Car Accident on I-35

Austin, TX (May 12, 2019) On the early morning of May 12th, a fatal car accident happened on Interstate 35 near Braker Lane. An unspecified number of vehicles collided in the 11000 block of North I-35 right before 4:00 a.m.

When the paramedics arrived to help, they found one person dead at the scene. Two other men sustained injuries and were taken to Round Rock

Medical Center for immediate medical care.

Crews diverted traffic from the highway to the frontage road as authorities investigated the scene.

Our thoughts are with the deceased man’s loved ones at this time. Our thoughts are with them and the two injured victims in this crash.

Vehicle Accidents in Texas

Whenever vehicle accidents occur between the hours of midnight and 6:00 a.m. on weekends, it’s usually because of drunk driving or fatigued driving. Driving under both circumstances has similar effects on the body, making drivers unable to successfully get to their destinations without the risk of causing major accidents. Drivers often experience blurry vision, and inability to control their bodies, which causes delayed responses to their surroundings. Therefore, it’s best if drivers avoid getting behind the wheel after they’ve consumed too much alcohol or if they haven’t gotten enough rest.
