A wrong-way driver has been arrested in Bexar County following two auto accidents in San Antonio on Thursday morning.
According to News 4 San Antonio, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office has said that no one was injured after a driver caused two accidents on the city’s south side while driving the wrong way on Loop 1604.
Deputies with the Sheriff’s Office say that the incident began when the driver of the truck sideswiped a Somerset ISD school bus on Loop 1604 near Highway 16 shortly before 7 a.m. on Thursday morning.
The two students on the bus were not seriously injured, but the driver of the truck still did not stop.
It was then that a deputy saw the truck and then tried to pull the driver over, but the driver of the truck took off in the wrong direction on Loop 1604 before the officer was able to approach him. It was at this time that the driver allegedly caused another accident with another truck.
The driver and passengers in that vehicle were also not seriously injured.
Deputies eventually caught up to the suspect at Loop 1604 and De Vilbiss where he was then arrested. At this time it is believed that he was under the influence of an unknown substance.
