About the San Antonio Crash
According to KSAT, the crash occurred at the intersection of N. Weidner Road and Wurzbach Parkway. A woman was speeding on Wurzbach when she lost control and slammed into five other vehicles that were stopped at a stoplight.
The woman’s vehicle left the road and came to rest in a grass area off the shoulder. The woman was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center.
