Austin, TX – 2 Injured in Car Accident on S Interstate 35 Service Rd
Austin, TX (June 16, 2019) On the morning of June 15th, a car accident happened on the 2100 block of South Interstate 35 Highway Service Road, not far from Oltorf Street. Two vehicles collided at approximately 1:56 a.m. for unknown reasons. The impact of the crash caused one person to eject from a vehicle and end up pinned between the two cars. Another person was pinned inside of their own vehicle.
Fortunately, the Austin Fire Department, Austin Police Department, and the paramedics arrived and extricated the two injured victims in a timely manner. They were both rushed to Austin Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries. Fortunately, they are both expected to be okay. There were two other victims involved in the collision that were unharmed.
Crews had to remove the two damaged vehicles out of the way for oncoming traffic.
We hope both injured victims recover quickly from their injuries.
