2 killed in three-vehicle crash in East Travis County

Two people are dead after a three-vehicle crash in east Travis County.

ATCEMS reported medics were on scene of the crash that occurred just before 1 p.m. August 14 on N SH 130 between FM 969 and FM 973. A black Chevrolet Suburban was traveling southbound on SH 130 when DPS says it crossed over the median and struck a Ford pick-up traveling north on the driver's side. 

The two people in those vehicles were pinned and reported possibly deceased by ATCEMS. They were later pronounced dead at the scene.

DPS says there was a secondary crash involving a gray Chevrolet Malibu, but the person was reported uninjured and refused EMS transport, according to ATCEMS.

SH 130 just north of FM 969 has been shut down in both directions due to the crash, but northbound lanes reopened just after 5:30 p.m. according to TxDOT Austin.

It is currently unknown what caused the Suburban to cross the median.
