Two Pedestrian Died in Austin

LNA,

Two pedestrian died after they were hit by two vehicles in southeast Austin early Wednesday morning. Police informed that the crash took place just after 6 a.m. on Burleson Road and Promontory Point Drive.

Austin-Travis County EMS initially informed that both the victims are men in their 30s, but the Austin Police Department would not confirm their gender or ages. They were dressed in a dark colored cloth. They were trying to cross the street when they were struck.

Both the drivers stayed at the scene after the crash and they have not been charged or cited. APD Corporal Steven Krippner said, “It was in the early morning and it was dark. Those conditions probably contributed to it. We don’t know if there was any speed or excessive speed involved, anything of that variety.”

Till police were investigating, Burleson Road was closed between Chapman Lane and Judson Road for several hours while police investigated. As stated in Austin police records, five car crashes occurred at Burleson and Promontory Point since 2013. The speed limit on Burleson is 45 miles per hour. Residents who stay nearby said they saw a lot of pedestrians out at all times of the day and night.

Business owner Angelina Moreno said, “We have a lot of homeless people walking, you know, crossing the street early in the morning. I guess they found shelter somewhere around the areas around here.”  As of now, this year, there have been 28 fatal crash… MORE
