On June 11th, 2022, at approximately 2:25 a.m., Austin Police Department officers responded to the 3600 block of S IH-35 SB for a crash between a vehicle and a woman in the roadway. 32-year-old Katy Trejo was a passenger on a motorcycle traveling south when she fell off. She was hit by two passing vehicles and died on the scene.
The driver of the first vehicle that hit Trejo initially stopped but left the scene shortly after. The second vehicle’s driver that also hit Trejo remained on the scene and is cooperating with the investigation. The motorcycle driver is charged with Driving While Intoxicated, a Class B Misdemeanor.
Austin-Travis County EMS said “multiple incidents” occurred from approximately the 900 block to the 3500 block of Interstate 35. In Texas, it’s illegal for a licensed alcohol vendor like a bar, restaurant, or club to sell or serve alcoholic drinks to an obviously intoxicated customer. Suppose a patron at a bar or club shows apparent signs of intoxication and the establishment keeps on serving the patron. In that case, they can be legally responsible for any injuries that the patron causes or suffers while under the influence.
