AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police said they made multiple DWI arrests after responding to four crashes on Interstate 35 early Sunday morning.
APD said the string of crashes happened on a stretch of I-35 northbound from the 600 block to the 2000 block — which is the downtown area.
Austin Travis County EMS tweeted that they transported five people to local hospitals. One of those people had serious injuries and the other had non-life-threatening injuries.
Police could not confirm how many people were arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated but did say the crashes were not related.
The area of I-35 where the crashes happened was closed for police investigation but has since been opened.
