Fatal Crash in Austin As Winter Storms Gather
Earlier today, one person died and two other people were injured in a tragic accident on Highway 71. The area, near Bee Cave Road, is currently one of many areas in greater Austin experiencing heavy fog and poor driving conditions.
Austin-Travis County EMS showed up to the scene and reported that two vehicles were involved. The deceased died at the scene, and the two others were taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge. Their injuries are very serious.
