AUSTIN (KXAN) — One woman died and a second is in the hospital with potentially serious injuries after a rollover crash early Wednesday morning in northwest Austin.
The single-car crash occurred around 1:45 a.m. on Spicewood Springs Road near St. Edwards Park. That’s northwest of Loop 360.
Fire crews say the driver hit a tree and ended up on the opposite side of the road. Both women were thrown from the car, and the passenger died at the scene. Austin-Travis County EMS took the driver to St. David’s Round Rock.
A trooper with the Department of Public Safety is investigating the crash. Spicewood Springs Road was closed at the crash site for a time Wednesday morning but has since reopened.
