EAST TRAVIS COUNTY -- An Austin man died Saturday morning after his vehicle veered off SH 130, north of Parmer Lane, in East Travis County.

Travis County deputies and DPS troopers responded to the single-vehicle crash at 5:44 a.m.

DPS said 23-year-old Justin Charles Poulain was killed when his 2004 Volkswagen drove off the toll road and hit a concrete barrier.

The vehicle broke into two pieces. The front section continued 150 feet southbound along the median while the rear section caught on fire.

First responders found Poulain in the burned section. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators said conditions were rainy and wet at the time. The speed limit in that area is 80 miles per hour.
