AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man has died after a crash in southeast Austin Wednesday night around midnight near Burleson Road and Metropolis Drive.
Police say a security guard found the driver underneath the truck after it flipped over. According to investigators, the man was ejected from the truck after it hit a guardrail and light pole before rolling over.
The truck was the only vehicle involved in the crash. Officers believe the driver was not wearing a seat belt and that speed may have been a factor.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
