AUSTIN (KXAN) — A pedestrian who was hit by a car earlier this month in northeast Austin died a few days after the crash, according to the Austin Police Department.

Police said the person who died is a white man who hasn’t been identified yet.

The crash happened Dec. 12 around 9:11 p.m. in the 6300 block of East U.S. 290 eastbound. That’s just east of the highway’s intersection with Interstate 35.
