A portion of Highway 290 West is now officially called the Lt. Clay Crabb Memorial Highway in honor of a fallen Austin police officer.

Crabb died on Oct. 16, 2013 when his car hydroplaned into oncoming traffic and was struck by a large truck. He was checking on low water crossings for flooding on that rainy day.

Anne Crabb said that morning started off like any other day. Clay was getting his uniform on for work while she was making lunches for the kids.
