Separate Crashes Kill One Pedestrian, Injure Two Others

Two separate overnight crashes have killed one pedestrian–and left tow others seriously hurt.

The first of those accidents happened just before Midnight near San Antonio College.

“The driver of a Chevy Malibu was traveling down San Pedro Avenue–and, for some unknown reason–swerved off the Avenue” SAPD’s Officer Douglas Greene told KTSA News, describing what happened.

“The driver did not stop to render aid, continued driving down San Pedro Avenue, striking tow more vehicles before he was apprehended by police” Greene said.

That man now faces a drunk driving charge. The man and woman he hit on the sidewalk were rushed to University Hospital with serious injuries.

A few hours later–a man lost his life near Jones-Maltsberger.

“The victim was attempting to cross Highway 281–was in the fast lane when they were struck by a vehicle” Greene said in explaining how the accident unfolded just before 5 AM Friday.

The driver in this case did stop–and is not expected to face any charges.

“A very dangerous situation. It was still dark out, the victim was wearing dark clothing” Greene said.
