TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) – A man in his 20s died after his car ran into a tree in the Steiner Ranch area of Travis County close to Lake Travis Sunday night, said Austin-Travis County EMS.

At about 9:34 p.m. a person called to report that a man was pinned in his car and unconscious in the 4200 block of Quinlan Park Road north of Steiner Ranch Boulevard and close to Steiner Ranch Elementary School.

Department of Public Safety officials identified the victim as San Marcos native Jon-Erik Cameron Williams, 28. A witness told authorities prior to the crash, the car drove by them going at a high rate of speed.

When medics arrived, they said it was clear the Williams had critical, life-threatening injuries and was possibly dead. They said they extracted him from his car and began resuscitation efforts, but he was later declared dead at the scene.

No one else was in the car, ATCEMS said. The Travis County Sheriff’s Office was assisting at the scene while medics were there and DPS was dispatched to take the lead on the investigation.
