FREDERICKSBURG, Texas (KXAN) — One person died and another person was taken to the hospital in a crash along US 290 near Fredericksburg.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says they were called to investigate the two-vehicle crash just after noon Tuesday. The crash happened approximately three miles east of Fredericksburg.
The Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office says all main lanes were blocked for several hours.
This stretch of highway where the crash happened just saw a speed limit decrease earlier this year. The Texas Department of Transportation lowered the speed limit from 70 to 60 mph after a three-vehicle crash claimed the lives of four people late last year.
