AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man died in a two-vehicle crash on Dessau Road, near E. Rundberg Lane and Cameron Road, Friday night.
Austin police were called to the scene at 8:35 p.m.
Police say a red car and a silver car were drag racing northbound on the 9500 block of Dessau, when the red car lost control and went into oncoming traffic, hitting a van. The driver of the red car, Faustino Torres Mijes, 29, of Austin, was pronounced dead at the scene after he was ejected from the vehicle.
The silver car left the scene, APD says.
The driver of the van was taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge with injuries not expected to be life-threatening.
The 9500 block of Dessau was closed Friday night for the crash investigation. At a press conference, an APD spokesperson says he was not aware of drag racing being a problem in the area.
