AUSTIN (KXAN) — A SWAT situation following a crash shut down State Highway 71 Friday afternoon and has ended peacefully.

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office says there were no serious injuries in the crash at Ross Road, but one person involved refused to get out of the vehicle. Police closed SH 71 between SH 130 and Wolf Lane for more than an hour.

Deputies were called to the scene at 4:15 p.m. and have the suspect in custody. Initially there was a concern the suspect could be armed.
