AUSTIN (KXAN) — One person has died and multiple others were badly hurt in a number of linked crashes on I-35 in central Austin early Saturday morning.

The northbound and southbound lanes of I-35 were shut down at the location of the incident, near the 51st Street intersection.

Medics from Austin-Travis County EMS were called to reports of multiple related crashes involving four vehicles at 1:55 a.m.

One vehicle rolled over and an unknown number of people were ejected onto the road, according to EMS.

In total, five people were injured. Three people were transported to Dell Seton Medical Center with critical, life-threatening injuries – and one of those people died from their injuries.

Another two people were taken to Dell Seton with serious injuries, EMS said, and an additional three people refused transport to a hospital.

“Abbie was in agony and the brothers knew they had to get her to hospital straight away to get her burns treated.

“It’s been an extremely difficult and testing time for them but she’s on the road to recovery,” they added.

Since the horrific incident, Abbie has remained off social media, leading followers to question if she and AJ are still together.

AJ and Abbie began dating in 2018, after meeting when the latter auditioned for AJ’s Get On The Floor Live tour.
