Two dead in Sunday morning crash on Texas 130


Two people are dead and two others, including a child, were injured in a three-vehicle wreck along Texas 130 Sunday morning, according to Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services.

The incident was reported shortly before 7 a.m. Emergency crews were en route to Circuit of the Americas when they came across the crash at 130 and Harold Green Road, according to EMS Capt. Darren Noak.

Two men, one in his 20s and one in his 30s, were pronounced dead at the scene. A child of unspecified age was taken to Dell Children’s Medical Center with serious injuries, and a woman was transported with injuries that weren’t life-threatening, Noak said.

Three other crashes were reported during the weekend. On Saturday evening, William Clarence Gifford, 37, died after being struck by a car near the 1100 block of North Bell Boulevard in Cedar Park.

On Sunday, EMS crews responded to a car-motorcycle crash at RM 620 and Falcon Head Boulevard in Bee Cave about 11:25 a.m. The motorcyclist, a man in his 50s, was airlifted to University Medical Center Brackenridge with critical and potentially life-threatening injuries, Noak said.

Two hours earlier, a female teenager suffered serious and potentially life-threatening injuries in a car-pedestrian crash near Loyola Lane and Johnny Morris Road.
