Bryson Brown accident: Bryson Brown death, obituary happened October 20, 2019 after a car crash with Brady Reardon in Bee Cave around 9:45pm
According to Bee Cave Police Chief Gary Miller, 16-year-old Brady Reardon was driving a Toyota 4Runner and 19 year old Bryson Brown was driving a Range Rover,
It is believed Reardon was traveling south on 620 and attempting to make a U-turn from the center turn lane to head north when the front of Brown’s vehicle struck the passenger side of Reardon’s vehicle.
This caused Reardon’s vehicle to roll onto its side and be pushed to the side of the road.
A third vehicle driven by a 62 year old then struck Bryson Brown’s vehicle.
Bryson was pronounced dead at the scene in the southbound lanes of RM 620 near Falcon Head Boulevard.
Brady Reardon was pinned under his car’s dashboard. Eight officers from Lake Travis Fire Rescue worked to extricate Reardon from his vehicle. Reardon was unconscious at the time and Prather estimated the process took about 20 minutes.
He was taken to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center.
There were no witnesses to the crash and bystanders on the scene performed CPR on Bryson Brown but sadly, it was to no avail. RM 620 was shut down with traffic rerouted for about five to six hours after the crash.

Bee Cave Police Chief Gary Miller said “there is an indication” that Brown got out of his vehicle after the initial crash, and was injured by his own vehicle when it was hit by the third vehicle.
Miller added that the night sky, coupled with the curve on the road may have contributed to the 62-year-old driver of the third vehicle not being aware of the initial wreck.
Both the driver and the 56-year-old passenger of this third vehicle, a Lexus GS, share the same address in Leander. Their names were not released.
There is no evidence of alcohol or illegal substances involved in the incident, Miller said.
Brown was a student in Vandegrift High School’s class of 2019. He was completing his credits toward graduation at Leander school district’s New Hope High School at the time of the crash which is now under investigation by the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Travis County sheriff’s office.
Please say a prayer for his grieving family. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
