Suspect in fatal New Braunfels crash turns himself in

The suspect who is accused of stealing a truck and reportedly causing a deadly crash in New Braunfels on Wednesday, November 21 has turned himself in.

26-year-old Austin Taylor Meade of North Las Vegas, Nevada turned himself in today at 10:22 am at AFD Station 2-506 on West MLK Boulevard.  He is currently in APD custody.  

Meade reportedly stole a work truck from a San Antonio business and was tracked to an apartment complex in New Braunfels. As patrol units arrived, Meade sped off at a high rate of speed.

He collided with an SUV near New Braunfels Fischer Park and than fled on foot.

Amber Rachelle Williams of New Braunfels was killed in that crash.

Meade eventually ended up in a neighborhood a little more than a mile away from the crash scene. Investigators say that he walked away and came across a woman at the park who was there to walk her dog. That woman spoke to Fox 7 Austin News and said she heard the crash and when Meade appeared, he indicated that he had witnessed it. Meade, according to the woman, asked for a ride to another location and later asked to make a phone call. The woman brought him to her house to make the call. Once there she says he became agitated, grabbed a knife in the kitchen and then took her car.
