AUSTIN (KXAN) – A man Austin police believe was not walking in a crosswalk when he was hit by a vehicle, the night of Sept. 8, has died, according to police.
The man who died has been identified as 48-year-old Robert Daniel Reyes. The auto vs. pedestrian crash happened around 9 p.m. in the 6500 block of Manchaca Road. Investigators determined Reyes attempted to cross Manchaca west-bound when he was hit by a 2013 Lexus heading south.
He was transported to UMC Brackenridge with a broken leg and possible head and spinal injuries. He died Wednesday night.
Police don’t believe the driver was under the influence of alcohol or that speed played a factor in the crash.
The crash is still being investigated.
This is Austin’s 68th fatal traffic crash and the 77th fatality of 2015. At this time in 2014, there were 37 fatality crashes and 44 fatalities.
