AUSTIN, Texas - The Austin Police Department has identified a woman killed in Sunday's crash in North Austin.
According to APD, officers were dispatched just before 5 p.m. to a motorcycle versus automobile crash at FM 2222 and City Park Road. The preliminary investigation shows that a 2009 black Yamaha motorcycle, driven by 29-year-old Terri Lynne Campbell, was going westbound on FM 2222 and was attempting to make a left turn onto City Park Road.
APD says it appears that the motorcycle failed to yield right of way to a 2013 white Acura RDX and was struck by the SUV.
EMS and fire crews performed lifesaving measures on Campbell, but she was pronounced dead at the scene. APD says she was wearing a helmet and other protective gear and had a valid motorcycle license. The driver of the SUV remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation.
APD says it's not believed that driver impairment or speeding were factors in the crash.
