Local man killed in fatal Travis County rollover

A Kyle man has been identified as the victim in a fatal single-vehicle rollover that took place in southeast Travis County Sunday.

Victor Aguiree-Arroyo, 21, of Kyle, was killed in a wreck that happened near the 9000 block of U.S. 183 roughly 4.5 miles south of Austin, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) spokesperson.

According to a preliminary report, a 2001 Honda Accord, operated by Aguiree-Arroyo, was traveling southbound on U.S. 183 at a high rate of speed. At around the same time, witnesses saw a motorcycle traveling northbound in the left lane of U.S. 183.

According to the report, the driver of the Accord “perceived” that the motorcycle was in his lane and was coming head-on. The driver then took a hard left at a high rate of speed in front of the motorcycle. The move caused the Accord to go into a right-hand side skid going into the oncoming lanes of traffic, and then into the northbound grass shoulder, according to the report.

The vehicle began to turn over, ejecting the driver, according to the report.

The release reported that Jorge Jaimes, 18, of Dale, was a passenger in the Accord at the time of the accident. Jaimes’ condition is unknown at this time.

DPS officials continue to investigate this incident. This story is developing. We will provide updates as information becomes available.
