Parolee And Driver Injured After Two-Car Collision
A convicted killer and a driver were injured after their vehicles crashed into each other, according to a February 13 article by Statesman.
The collision happened near Farmhouse Apartments on Wednesday. 50-year-old Matthew Milligan was convicted in 1988 for murder but he violated his parole. Police encountered him driving a vehicle in the 4600 block of FM 1327, where they tried to approach him. Milligan initially pulled over but suddenly sped away and turned onto the Interstate 35 service road. Then, he turned towards Farmhouse Apartments, hit a parked vehicle, then drove through an apartment’s metal property gate and a barrier wall. Afterwards, he returned to Interstate 35 where he eventually collided into another car in the 2500 block of Brandt Road. As a result, both Milligan and the other driver were sent to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center to get treatment.
Later, Milligan was booked into the Travis County Jail and was charged with aggravated assault with deadly weapon as a result of the crash, evading arrest, criminal mischief, and parole violation.
