DPS says an 18-wheeler rolled over into a creek around 12:27 a.m. after drifting outside of its lane, striking a guardrail before going into the creek.

A passenger in the truck, 27-year-old Alejandro Bustamante of Nogales, Arizona, died at the scene.

The driver, a 70-year-old man also from Nogales, was transported to St. David's South Austin hospital.

The cash is still under investigation.
