Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 27-Jan-2014

A head-on collision in Travis County claimed the life of the driver of a pickup truck when his truck collided with another pickup on Hwy 71 near Fall Creek Road.

The victim of the fatal traffic accident in Travis County has not yet been identified by police and investigations are still underway.

According to police reports, the white pickup truck rear-ended the other pickup involved, which was identified as a red, Chevy S-10. Police said the driver of the red pickup truck was attempting to make a left turn at the time of the crash.

The unidentified driver of the red pickup truck was pronounced dead at the scene of the Hwy 71 accident. A passenger in the red pickup truck was transported to University Medical Center Brackenridge for the treatment of his injuries. He was recently listed in critical condition, emergency officials reported.

The driver of the other pickup, reportedly, endured minor injuries as a result of the rear-end collision in Spicewood, Texas. The accident occurred at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, officials noted.

Late last week and into the weekend, adverse weather conditions provoked serious accidents all over the state. According to the Austin Police Department, the Austin region reported more than 278 traffic-related accidents on Thursday and Friday alone, despite efforts by the Texas Department of Transportation to deice the roadways. Despite the high number of injuries tied to the hundreds of accidents reported across Central Texas, Austin reported no fatalities tied to any of those accidents.
