HUTTO (KXAN) — Williamson County and Texas Department of Public Safety authorities worked a fatal crash involving three vehicles and a motorcycle in Hutto Friday morning.

A tweet made around 6:15 a.m. said there is a major crash at Highway 79 and Limmer Loop.

Investigators said that Arthur Thomas Simmons Jr., a 62-year-old motorcyclist, was killed after being hit by a car traveling westbound on Highway 79 as he was trying to turn eastbound.

DPS said other vehicles ran Simmons over because they were unable to stop in time.

Westbound Highway 79 was shutdown during the investigation and was reopened just after 10 a.m.
