AUSTIN, TX – Two construction workers were killed after being struck by a driver who may have been speeding on the I-35 service road this morning, according to CBS Austin.

The crash happened at 4911 S I-35 service road near Teri Road at 9:29 a.m., as two men in their 30s were installing a road sign in a grassy area off the side of the roadway.

The driver of a northbound 2015 Porsche then ran off the side of the road and crashed into the two men. The driver was pinned within the wreckage of his vehicle as a result.

The two workers were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver was declared a trauma alert, and after being extricated by emergency crews, was taken to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center for the treatment of possibly serious injuries that were not expected to be life-threatening.

Authorities believe that based on skid marks at the scene, the driver may have been speeding when the collision occurred. Their investigation continues at this time, and charges have not yet been filed.
