Fatal Wrong-Way Crash on I-35 in Round Rock Causes Delays

ROUND ROCK (KVUE) -- A 31-year-old man has been arrested and charged with intoxication manslaughter with a vehicle after he hit and killed a motorcyclist while driving the wrong way down Interstate 35 in Round Rock Wednesday morning. The deadly crash caused delays of up to two-hours for commuters heading southbound from the area.

Austin Police officers first received calls around 4 a.m. about a vehicle driving northbound in the southbound lanes of I-35 in Austin. Police officers pursued and attempted to stop vehicle from the northbound side until the driver, John McClintock, hit the motorcyclist around Highway 79.

"The officers witnessed this happen, which is traumatic," said senior officer Nathan Blake with APD. "It is very difficult. Our officers were following this vehicle with lights activated and we don't have indication that the driver even recognized that police were attempting to get this driver's attention."

The crash also involved another vehicle, causing the second victim minor injuries.

The crash closed all of the main southbound lanes of I-35 south of Highway 79 as crash investigators examined the scene. The frontage road re-opened around 8:30 a.m. and the main lanes reopened at around 10:30 a.m.

McClintock remains in jail pending his first court hearing

mistakes do happen but to have one happen that was very preventable is unacceptable. I hope the person who causes the accident gets everything he deserves and more.

seems to happen infrequently. We will be lucky if this trash even gets jail time.

It puzzles me every time I hear stories of a wrong way driver. You would think it would be pretty easy to see the car well before it got to you. For sure he should have noticed the cop lights(in this case) that were right behind the DD.

Not trying to hijack thread or anything... It just seems odd to me.

At night, a group of friends and I were heading to South Padre Island. I was unfamiliar with the road and couldn't tell if the road had a bend in it and it just looked like he was on our side of the road or was actually on our side of the road. I was in the lead of our 3 car pack and I swerved and all my friends reacted the same and we barely missed him. We all pulled over after that to calm down. It was probably one of the scariest times I ever encountered to this day. So to answer your question, its hard to determine that they are on your side of the road sometimes until it may be too late. But on freeway with concrete barriers, it should be much easier to determine that.

Several month ago I was driving back from Houston on IH10 at about 3am, just west of SATX at the Rim and had a wrong way driver buzz me with us both at freeway speed. I had just enough time to move the car maybe two feet to the right and I swear that made the difference. is crazy.

You would have to be beyond inebriated not to notice all the cues you are going the wrong way.

I dunno, me and an older coworker were traveling to NOLA and stopped in Lafayette to stop for the night. We went to get food that evening and he turned down a one-way road. He had the nerve to yell at the other drivers!

I had to literally point him towards a median to get us on the right side of the road, he still defended his actions even though we could have hit someone head on. This wasnt a freeway or anything, I think that would be even harder to accomplish considering most have ramps that would be hard to get to going the wrong direction.
