Police: Speed possible factor in deadly Sunday crash

AUSTIN - Police said investigators believe speed was a factor in a fatal crash in which a 34-year-old man died early Sunday.

APD said Jose Rogelio's Honda Accord was traveling northbound in the 7500 block of Cameron Road near U.S. 183 around 12:20 a.m. Sunday. Police said Rogelio failed to negotiate a right curve, entered the center median and struck a tree.

When authorities arrived on the scene, the car was in flames. Firefighters didn't find Rogelio until they extinguished the fire.

This crash was the 53rd fatal crash in Austin in 2016 and 54th fatality of the year.
