One person killed in SE Austin rollover crash

One person is dead after a rollover crash involving a septic truck. It happened in southeast Austin just before 6 a.m.

Officials say the driver hit an electrical pole. DPS says the driver was going north on Thaxton when he overcorrected after slightly going off the road. The driver lost control and rolled over and hit the pole.

The intersection of Thaxton and Sassman Road is blocked as officials say there is some difficulty removing the truck.

Austin Energy is on scene because one home in the area lost power.

DPS is investigating and it could be several more hours before the scene is cleared. 

Officials say the next of kin has not been notified.
