Yesterday evening, a beloved preacher from Austin and his wife were tragically killed in an accident caused by a wrong-way driver.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the fatal car accident occurred at about 9:15 p.m. on U.S. 290 near Baxter Lane. The vehicle the couple was traveling in in the eastbound lanes of the highway was hit when a driver from the westbound lanes crossed over the center line. The two vehicles collided head-on.
The preacher and his wife, both 64-years old, were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The driver in the other vehicle was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ family and friends.
