Austin, TX (7/9/2021) – A driver was killed by a car in southeast Austin on Friday in a fatal roadside accident.
The accident happened around 11:04 a.m. when a Jeep Wrangler and a box truck were merging into the center lane on E. Ben White Boulevard at the same time a driver, 40-year-old Miguel Guerrero-Garcia, was removing bags of mulch from the roadway that had fallen off his trailer. While the two vehicles were merging, the driver’s side of the Jeep scraped the passenger side of the box truck, which caused the Jeep to travel in the outside lane and strike Guerrero-Garcia.
Guerrero-Garcia was pronounced dead at the scene.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
