Local Teacher Involved in Head-On Collision
AUSTIN, TX – Ginger Johnson, a long-time Lake Travis High School teacher, was killed in an accident on her way to school last week.
According to official reports, Johnson was driving to work on Texas 71 just west of Austin. She was between Bee Cave Road and Southwest Parkway when she was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle. Johnson died on scene.
The driver of the other vehicle, a woman estimated to be in her 40s, was transported to the hospital with what appeared to be serious injuries. A child in that vehicle was also taken to the hospital, but the child did not have any apparent trauma.
Johnson had been employed with the school for 24 years. She was a fixture at the high school, and both staff and students were heartbroken over the news of her death.
Superintendent Brad Lancaster released a statement which read, in part, “The LTISD family extends its deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences on the loss of our dear friend and colleague. I ask that you please keep Mrs. Johnson and her family in your thoughts and prayers.”
Johnson was described by parents as having a generous heart and always being willing to help her students reach success in her classroom. Grief counselors were available to anyone who desired to speak with them.
