Two people died in vehicle crashes over the weekend, San Antonio police said.

The first accident occurred Saturday at 4:50 a.m.

She was ejected from the vehicle and taken to University Hospital in critical condition, where she later died.

The second accident happened around 9 p.m. on Saturday, police said.

Scotty Karl Schroder, 27, who was driving a white Suzuki motorcycle, was speeding down the access road around of Loop 410 near Ingram, when a tan Jeep Grand Cherokee pulled out of a parking lot.
