AUSTIN (KXAN) — Police say a man who died in a crash in northwest Austin last week was possibly driving under the influence of alcohol.

Kevin Henderson, 61, was traveling westbound in the 11200 block of Lakeline Mall Drive when he left the roadway, struck a curb, drove over a guardrail and hit a tree. Henderson was transported to the hospital where he later died.

Authorities believe alcohol was a contributing factor in the deadly crash.

This is Austin’s 29th fatal traffic crash.
