San Antonio Police Department: One girl dead, another hospitalized from a shooting on the West Side
The driver of a black Dodge Challenger traveling at “high speed” eastbound on Southwest Military Highway lost control around 11:00 p.m. and swerved into the westbound lanes in the 2700 block, according to a police report.
The Challenger struck the driver’s side of a Honda Civic that was stopped in a left-turn lane due to running a red light, police said. The Civic’s driver was waiting to turn left onto Yarrow Boulevard. The Challenger pulled back into its lane as the Civic was pushed into a white Volkswagen.
The crash left the 27-year-old Civic driver stranded in his car, according to the report. He was extricated from the car and taken to hospital, where he is in “stable, not life threatening condition” since the last check, SAPD said.
Police said the driver of the Challenger was also linked to another earlier crash. The driver of the Challenger is facing charges of failure to arrest and provide information and reckless driving, the SAPD said.
