Driving Lesson Goes Horribly Wrong

A driving lesson gone horribly wrong.

That’s how San Antonio Police describe what led up to a terrible accident late Tuesday Night on the Southside, leaving a teen fighting for his life.

The San Antonio Police Department’s Officer Douglas Greene said the teen was a passenger in a car driven by a friend–who was trying to learn how to drive a stick shift on a private road near Applewhite.

“The victim’s door was not properly shut” SAPD’s Officer Douglas Greene told KTSA News, adding “When the driver of the vehicle was making a right turn, that’s when the victim decided to readjust the door. At that time is when that victim fell out of the vehicle.”

As he fell from the car, the 19-year old hit his head on the ground. He was rushed to University Hospital in critical condition.

“The driver of the vehicle was not intoxicated, stayed at the scene, called 911 and provided reasonable assistance. There are no criminal charges pending in this case” Greene said.
