Overnight Motorcycle Accident Leaves One Dead

Updated: Saturday, July 5 2014, 07:18 PM CDT

One person is dead Saturday morning after being thrown from a motorcycle from an overpass onto the freeway below in South Austin.

According to Austin/Travis County EMS, at approximately 1:15 a.m. Saturday morning a call was received about a single-vehicle collision on northbound I-35 flyover to west  Ben White.  First responders found a motorcycle and an "obvious" person dead on the scene on I-35 northbound, under the flyover.

Witnesses stated that they saw the victim falling from the flyover onto the interstate below.

The victim is being described as a white male in his 20's

It is unknown if speed or alcohol were a factor.

This incident comes one week after a similar accident on the 183 north flyover from MoPac, in which former UTSA women's basketball coach Rae Rippetoe-Blair was thrown from her motorcycle onto MoPac below.

Austin Police continue to investigate last night's incident.
