AUSTIN (KXAN) — Lanes have reopened on I-35 after traffic was diverted due to a deadly crash in downtown Austin.
The Austin Police Department says a person was hit by a vehicle around 4:20 A.M. Sunday morning in the 200 block of SB I-35 near Cesar Chavez.
The driver of the vehicle stayed on scene. Investigators have not said what caused the crash.
Southbound I-35 traffic was diverted onto the frontage road at the 8th Street exit.

A man was killed crossing the interstate near Well branch in May and one more fatality occurred near Farm to Market Road 1626.
