Pair of wrecks in Hays County kill one, close Interstate 35

A pair of accidents snarled traffic south of Austin early Monday morning, with the resulting backups extending into the lunch hour.

The first accident, around mile marker 217 on the northern edge of Kyle, involved an 18-wheeler losing its load in the southbound lanes of the highway around 6:00am. Minutes later, a second accident happened around mile marker 220, near the Cabela's sporting goods store in Buda when an 18-wheeler rear-ended a pickup truck. The driver of the pickup was killed; two passengers were taken to an area hospital with unspecified injuries.

Backups extended 7-8 miles back to near Slaughter for much of the morning, with the mainlanes of I-35 completely shut down due to the 18-wheeler cleanup as well as the fatality investigation. Traffic was being diverted to the frontage road at mile marker 223 near the Toll 45 SE interchange. Drivers reported delays of up to 45 minutes trying to get past both accidents.

All lanes of the interstate re-opened around 11:30am Monday morning.
