About the San Antonio Accident

According to San Antonio Express News, a white Chevy extended cab pickup truck was going eastbound on Southwest Military Drive when he made a wide turn to get onto the I-35 access road.

The driver lost control of the vehicle and hit a concrete pillar holding up a highway sign.  He was described as weaving in and out of traffic.

One passenger was seen getting out of the truck – a vehicle came by and picked him up and left with him.  The driver of the Chevy is not helping police find the missing passenger.

Another passenger was killed in the accident. Authorities indicated that neither passenger was wearing a seatbelt.

Good samaritans stopped to help the driver get out of the vehicle.  They attempted to remove the passenger from the back seat but he was too badly injured to be moved.

Police have arrested the driver and have charged him with intoxicated manslaughter.
