TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas — One person is dead and two others are injured after a crash near Cedar Park that caused all three patients to become trapped in the vehicle. 

Austin-Travis County EMS (ATCEMS) tweeted just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday that medics and STAR Flight were responding to a reported pin-in collision in the 18000 block of FM 1431. Initial reports were that there were multiple critical patients and the extrication of one patient was in progress.

At 9:34 p.m., ATCEMS said medics were advising that there were a total of three pinned patients, with one unconscious and in the process of being extricated, and with extrication still in progress on the other two patients.

At 10:13 p.m., ATCEMS said medics had obtained a "deceased on scene" pronouncement for one adult. The two other adults were transported to Round Rock Medical Center.
