Police investigate fatal traffic accident on South Lamar

Police are investigating after a man was hit by two cars and killed while standing on South Lamar on the night of Oct. 27. 

Austin police say the initial investigation shows Jasper Bailey was wearing all black clothing and standing in the center turn lane on South Lamar when a driver of a 2014 Toyota hit him, causing him to be pushed into the northbound lane. Bailey was consequently pushed into the path of a 2001 Chevrolet. Both drivers stopped and immediately called 911, police say. They have both been helpful and cooperative with the investigation. 

Bailey was pronounced dead on the scene. 

Police say if anyone has information about the case to contact the APD Vehicular Homicide Unit at (512) 974-4424.
