AUSTIN (KJCE) -- Austin Police have identified the robbery suspect killed while trying to flee along Interstate 35 last week.

Police say 40-year old Christopher Brown was trying to evade police after a robbery at a nearby convenience store in the 7500 block of North Interstate 35. Brown jumped over a concrete barrier to cross the heavily-traveled roadway; as he entered the center lane, Brown ran into the rear portion of a passing 18-wheeler.

Brown was transported to Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas where he succumbed to his injuries.

Police say the driver of the 18-wheeler was unaware of the impact and no charges are expected to be filed.

Anyone with information regarding this case should call APD’s Vehicular Homicide Unit Detectives at (512) 974-6935.
