Two people were killed Wednesday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash just outside of Round Rock. It happened at around noon at the intersection of CR 172 and Hesters Crossing, about a mile west of I-35. The Williamson County Sheriff's Office said it was a two-vehicle crash with two confirmed fatalities. The two people killed were in the same vehicle. A deputy suffered severe burns to his arm and hands while pulling out a person from one of the vehicles that was on fire — that passenger did not survive.
