A fatal vehicle accident involving three vehicles occurred in Austin on Wednesday around noon. The accident occurred on Manchaca Road when a southbound silver Mazda Protege traveled into the northbound lane of traffic and struck a Kia Sportage. A Hyundai Sonata hit the first collision after the accident had taken place. Tragically, a man that was in the Mazda passed away at the scene of the accident. The other passenger of the Mazda, a passenger of the Kia, and a family of three people that were in the Hyundai were all taken to the hospital to receive medical attention for their injuries.
The intersection in the area next to the scene of the accident is a very dangerous intersection located in Austin. Yellow posts were installed in order to stop drivers from cutting through the four lanes of traffic in order to turn around. Now, drivers must find a safe spot to turn around. Improper turns are a common cause of vehicle accidents. They occur when drivers fail to follow traffic safety laws and ignore signs and the legal flow of traffic.
