AUSTIN (KXAN) — The 36-year-old man killed while crossing Interstate 35 in between Airport Boulevard and 51st Street last week has been identified by police.
Christopher Joseph Gorman was hit by the driver of a vehicle heading southbound in the 5300 block of I-35 around 7:44 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 20.
Gorman died at the scene. Police say the driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with officers. No charges are expected against the driver.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the APD Vehicular Homicide Unit Detectives at (512) 974-5594.
“I’m quite sure it was pretty traumatic for the driver,” Austin Police Sgt. Chandra Ervin said at the time. “It’s the holiday season, traffic is high, there’s a lot of speeders that are on the highway, and it’s really unsafe for individuals, particularly this time of day, to try to cross all six lanes of traffic.”
