Austin police were unable to provide details on the investigation and whether any charges will be filed. This is a very early stage in the police investigation to confirm what the de-phoned vehicle was.
A total of nine ambulances rushed to the scene.
Tony Blohetsky of KVUE arrived at the scene after the accident. When he arrived, he saw a car plowing into a food truck:
Mike Marut of KVUE spoke to a Zhuyin employee and manager who ran out as soon as it happened. They said they saw people trapped under the silver car. There were deaf and hard of hearing people outside, no accident noises were heard, and they were attacked. The manager said one of the victims had a serious leg injury. The employee and manager brought out pieces to help the injured.
One person told Blohetsky of the KVUE that he had seen a white pickup speeding just minutes before the crash sounded like an “explosion”.
