Police ID driver who died after chain-reaction crash in Northwest Austin
Austin police on Tuesday identified a driver who died in the hospital after a crash involving at least three vehicles in Northwest Austin last month.
Authorities said 67-year-old Alan Goldsberry was driving north in a tan Honda CR-V near the 11200 block of Research Boulevard around 9 p.m. on Oct. 31, when a black Dodge Durango truck in front of him stopped in the road suddenly.
The car immediately behind Goldsberry’s car avoided the crash, but a gray Jeep Wrangler struck the back of Goldsberry’s Honda, which then struck the black Dodge truck in front of it, police said.
The driver of the black Dodge truck did not stay at the crash and drove off, police said. But officers found the driver after a witness provided police with the license plate number.
Police said the driver of the black Dodge truck, who was not injured, is not facing charges because the incident is still under investigation.
