AUSTIN (KXAN) — A 51-year-old man is facing charges after a fatal crash Sunday that killed two people.
A motorcycle and a vehicle collided in the 500 block of E. Ben White Boulevard Service Road westbound around 2:45 a.m., leading to medics pronouncing two people dead at the scene, according to tweets from Austin-Travis County EMS.
Roberto Rangel is facing two charges of intoxication manslaughter with a vehicle. He was arrested on Sunday and booked into the Travis County Jail, according to online records.
Attorneys listed for Rangel declined to comment when reached by KXAN.
Medics declared one person dead shortly after they arrived on scene. They attempted CPR on a second patient, but that person also died at the scene.
These deaths happened less than a mile from a fatal crash early Saturday morning.
That crash occurred after a driver hit a concrete barrier at E. Ben White Boulevard Service Road and South Congress Avenue.
