AUSTIN, TX – An elderly man was possibly injured during a multi-vehicle collision on the Capital of Texas Highway last week, according to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

The accident happened on the Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360), near the Mopac Expressway, at 12:38 p.m. Thursday.

The driver of a beige 2000 Nissan, a 59-year-old man, was reportedly following too closely behind a gray 2010 Toyota. The 59-year-old driver then rear-ended the Toyota.

The Toyota, driven by a 71-year-old man, then collided with the rear of a silver 2000 Toyota being driven by a 67-year-old man.

The 71-year-old driver sustained a possible injury in the crash.

Four passengers, including a 2-year-old boy, were traveling in the 2010 Toyota. Luckily, they and the other two drivers were not reported as injured in the crash.

The driver of the Nissan was determined to be at fault.
