AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man in his 20s is dead following an auto versus pedestrian collision along US 183 sometime Wednesday morning, Austin-Travis County EMS reports.

EMS was notified of a body on the side of the road, north of McKinney Falls Parkway, at 7:13 a.m. when someone called to report a body on the side of the road.

Austin police say they suspect the man was hit by a car because of debris in the area.

“It appears that it was struck by a vehicle that left the scene,” Sgt. Rodney Moeller said. “So at this point vehicle homicide units are investigating it.”

Moeller said they do not yet have a description of the vehicle, and anyone with information should call the APD Vehicular Homicide Unit at (512) 974-5789.

The outside lane of Southbound Highway 183 near McCall was closed until 10:35 a.m. as officers investigated.
