DPS identifies man killed in crash near Elgin
Department of Public Safety investigators have identified the man killed Wednesday in a three-vehicle crash near Elgin.
It happened near the Hwy 290 and FM 696 intersection.
According to DPS, a 2014 Dodge Ram towing a flatbed trailer was traveling westbound on Hwy 290 at an unsafe speed due to the weather conditions when it lost control and traveled into the eastbound lane.
The Dodge Ram then struck a 2007 Lexus IS250, which then caused a 2016 Dodge Journey also traveling eastbound to collide with the Lexus.
The driver of the Lexus died at the scene. He has been identified as 32-year-old Ahmed Zaidan Khazaal, of Austin.
The drivers of the other two vehicles were transported to local hospitals in stable condition, DPS said.
