AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department identified a man killed in a single-vehicle crash over the weekend just south of Austin. Another person was hospitalized.
In a release Wednesday, APD says officers responded to the crash in the 11700 block of South Mopac Expressway near the intersection with Archelata Boulevard around 7:54 p.m. Saturday.
There, officers found a grey 2019 McLaren 600, according to APD.
The passenger in the car, later identified as 57-year-old Andrea Silvio Granzotti, was ejected and pronounced dead on scene around 8 p.m., police say.
The driver of the car was taken to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center by STAR Flight with life-threatening injuries, APD says.
Initial investigations show the McLaren was traveling east at a high speed when it left the roadway and hit a concrete pillar, according to APD.
Police say investigators believe speed was a factor, and it’s unknown whether or not the driver was impaired at the time of the crash.
Anyone with information can call APD’s Vehicular Homicide Unit at (512) 974-4278.
