Bestinau got that-

At least 11 people were injured, two of them seriously, after a T-bone collision between two vehicles pushed into a group of pedestrians standing in front of a food truck in Austin Friday night, officials said.

The “major collision” occurred around 8:18 p.m. at the intersection of Barton Springs Road and Sterzing Street, where some food trucks were lined up, Christa Stedman, the public information officer for Austin-Travis County EMS, told reporters at the scene.

The crash was a “T-bone-style collision” that forced one of the vehicles “into a group of pedestrians near the food trucks,” Stedman said.

All 11 victims were adults, she said. Nine patients were taken to area hospitals and two others refused medical treatment or transport and walked away from the crime scene.

Two victims suffered potentially life-threatening injuries. Two others were seriously injured and five had non-life-threatening injuries.

Three patients were transported to Dell Seton Medical Center and six were transported to South Austin Medical Center.

Two people suffered potentially life-threatening injuries in the accident.
