AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man had to be rescued after being pinned in a vehicle in southeast Austin. In all, three people were taken to the hospital.

The collision happened around 5:30 a.m. Thursday, on the northbound Interstate 35 service road near Teri Road. That’s just north of Stassney Lane. A KXAN viewer describes the scene as cars piled on top of each other near a light post.

Austin police shut down the road to investigate and clean up, telling drivers at the time that the service road will not be usable for “an extended time” and that people should avoid the area. It reopened as of 8:30 a.m.

One of the people taken to the hospital had life-threatening injuries, while the other two had non-life-threatening injuries.
