Two Women Injured in Alleged Hit-and-run Accident on Research Blvd. in Austin, TX

Austin, TX -- December 31, 2022, two people were injured as the result of an accident where a car crashed, and a driver allegedly fled.

Austin Police officials say they are continuing to seek a man they allege fled the scene of a car crash. It happened on Research Boulevard along US 183, just off North Lamar, at around 11:42 p.m. According to authorities, two women sustained injuries after the car they were in ran off the roadway and collided into a barrier.

The driver, who police allege was 27-year-old Luis Angel Castilleja, then got out of the vehicle and left the scene on foot. Police have told folks in the Austin, Kyle, and San Marcos areas to be vigilant. Generally speaking, that is one of the most vital tools for bringing a conclusion to hit-and-run accidents.

I certainly can't say who is responsible for all of this. That's between the authorities and the suspect. But hit-and-runs are all too common in Texas, and it's vital to ensure there are appropriate consequences. Part of that will be looking into things like warrants, drugs, drunk driving, and other common reasons why people flee the scene of car accidents. I remain hopeful those affected by this crash will see closure so long as the community keeps these details in their mind until someone can connect the dots.
