High-speed toll road has first fatality

11/13/2012

A Lockhart woman was killed on the Texas 130 toll road in what is the first fatality since the corridor's new segment opened last month.

Though the Sunday afternoon crash immediately revived questions about the road's 85 mph speed limit, the fastest in the country, investigators have not yet determined if speed was a factor.

The new Texas 130 segment, a band of asphalt cutting through the open land of Central Texas, stretches 41 miles from south Austin to Interstate 10 in Seguin, passing west of Lockhart.
