TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A head-on collision near Leander Saturday morning left one dead and sent three others to the hospital.

The crash happened around 10:40 a.m. in the 18000 block of FM 1431 near Vista Rock Drive.

Tim Campbell, Incident Commander Battalion Chief with ESD #1, says a man, identified as Michael Brent Holland, 31, was driving westbound when crossed over two lanes of traffic into the eastbound lanes, hitting a mini van head on.

The man died at the scene. No one else was in his car.

A man in his 60s with critical injures and a woman in her 40s with potentially critical injuries were taken Round Rock Medical Center. A child with potentially critical injuries was taken to Dell Children’s Medical Center. Campbell says they were all traveling in the minivan.

The crash shut down all but one lane of FM 1431. DPS is investigating whether or not weather was a factor in the crash.
