AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man is dead and eight others injured in a three-car collision that closed West State Highway 71 at Spanish Oaks Club Boulevard, just southeast of the Hill Country Galleria.
ATCEMS tweeted there was ice on the road when they arrived at the crash. Bee Cave Police say the man who died, 41-year-old Michael Charles Roeder, was traveling east on SH 71. When he drove over the Barton Creek bridge, he lost control and spun into the westbound lanes.
