Austin Area Accidents

While Austin is one of the most desirable places to reside in Texas and the United States – we seem to have more than their fair share of accidents. Consider the following information related to vehicle and pedestrian collisions and other traffic information that has occurred in recent weeks.

 

*Perhaps one of the most surprising turn of events in Texas is the adoption of increased speed limits sanctioned by the Texas Department of Transportation just this week. While not universal, expect there to be increased speed limits on segments of State Highway 130 from Georgetown to Mustang Ridge and SH 45SE from Mustang Ridge to I-35 in south Travis County. If the speed is set at 80 or 85 miles an hour then expect people to be passing you at up to ten (or more) miles beyond that. In other words, it seems quite probable that drivers may meet or exceed 95 to 100 miles an hour on these sections. In my personal estimation this will lead to a greater number of accidents with increased severity of injuries.

 

*A young man who was being sought by Immigration and Naturalization ran a red light and plowed into a gasoline tanker causing a fiery explosion in a truck accident and caused the death of the truck driver on an Austin roadway. His passenger suffered severe injuries and the young man is being charged with criminally negligent homicide, according to reports.

 

*In another shocking accident – a semi-truck was the source of another truck accident that resulted in a highway sign falling across the interstate and shutting down all lanes for several hours while the sign was dismantled and removed.
