AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police identified a man who was hit and killed while walking Monday evening on Congress Avenue.
Christian Livingston, 26, was walking in the road “rather than on the east curb line sidewalk available to him,” police said.
Debrah Callison, 69, is suspected of driving drunk, which police believe contributed to the crash that happened on S. Congress Avenue, just north of Slaughter Lane, around 8:23 p.m. Livingston was pronounced dead on scene.
The victim was the fourth person to die in a crash on South Congress this year.
Residents have expressed concerns that the area is too dark, and in a briefing on Tuesday morning, APD Corporal Jason Huskins said lack of lighting could have also contributed to the crash.
