Patricia Ulloa Killed, 3 Injured in Austin, TX, Rear-end Accident

Austin, TX -- February 19, 2017, Patricia Ulloa was killed, three were injured, in Austin, TX, after an accident in which a car rear-ended multiple vehicles.

Austin-Travis County authorities were called to the accident scene at around 11:30 p.m. They say it occurred at the intersection of Capitol of Texas Highway and Lakewood Drive.

Police reported that four vehicles, a Toyota Rav4, a Lexus IS530, a Volvo S40, and a Nissan Rogue, were stopped at the traffic light. A Toyota Camry was reportedly driving at high speeds toward the light. Due to speed and wet roads, the Camry could not stop in time, and it slammed into the back of the Volvo and the Rav4. This caused a chain reaction involving the other cars.

The crash was severe enough that 56-year-old Ulloa, the driver of the Volvo, was killed at the scene. Her passenger, who wasn't identified, suffered serious injuries and was taken to University Medical Center-Brackenridge.

Two other people, the drivers of the Camry and the Rogue, were transported to University Medical Center-Brackenridge for treatment of non-critical injuries. Two others refused treatment at the scene.

It's not clear if police filed any charges or citations following the accident. No additional details are currently available.
