Bastrop County, TX (KXAN) — The Texas Department of Public Safety and Crime Stoppers are asking anyone with information about a double fatality crash to come forward.

On the evening of March 13, DPS officials responded to a two-vehicle crash on State Highway 95 near Roemer Lane just outside of Elgin.

Preliminary investigations showed a 2015 GMC Terrain was headed southbound when it drove into the northbound lanes and hit a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu.

The husband of the driver of the GMC Terrain told police he was on the phone with her just before the crash. He said a vehicle in front of her turned suddenly and in her effort to take evasive action, she ended up driving into the northbound lanes.

DPS is searching for information surrounding the vehicle that may have been turning in front of the GMC Terrain, leading to a crash. 

Anyone with any information about this crash or the vehicle involved is urged to contact Austin Crime Stoppers at 866 930-TIPS (8477). All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
