About the San Antonio Crash

According to the San Antonio Express-News, the family of four was the occupant of a green vehicle. The driver was a male, while the other passengers were two women, one in her twenties and the other aged 12, and a baby.

They were driving in the 400 block of Ira Lee, located on the Northeast Side of San Antonio north of Austin Highway, at about 11 o’clock at night when a man driving a silver car the opposite way veered into their lane, colliding head on with their car.

According to FOX 29, while all four passengers of the green car were taken to the hospital and are alive, only the condition of the driver is known. He suffered a broken leg in the accident. Police issued the man a citation for not having a license or proof of insurance.
