AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man was critically injured in a crash Thursday night with a dump truck just north of the Loop 360 Bridge in west Austin.
Austin-Travis County EMS medics were called to the crash at the intersection of Loop 360 and Courtyard Drive at 8:59 p.m. Only two vehicles were involved in the crash. A preliminary investigation by police shows that the loaded dump truck T-boned a Ford Mustang in the intersection. The dump truck was traveling southbound and hit the Mustang on its passenger side.
The man has been taken to Dell Seton Medical Center. Austin police say no Loop 360 lanes were blocked by the crash, because the vehicles came to a stop in the right shoulder of the southbound lanes.
On-ramps from Ranch to Market 2222 to 360 southbound were shutdown after the crash.
Austin police are asking any witnesses to the crash to call the Vehicular Homicide Unit at 512-974-5576.
