A wild ride ended with a crash at a South San Antonio car dealership late Sunday night.
A San Antonio police sergeant spotted several people driving recklessly and racing in the parking lot of a Lowe's Home Improvement near Interstate 35 and Zarzamora Street.
The sergeant forced the drivers to leave the parking lot, but was then approached by a passerby who said one of the cars was upside down at a nearby Chevy dealership.
Police said the driver apparently crashed into a fence and just missed hitting several vehicles lined up at the dealership.
"Absolute frustration. We've been here for many years, and it's frustrating, because someone has to pay for this. It's expensive to fix," said David Vara, general manager at Vara Chevrolet.
Vara said everyone involved got lucky that a tree kept the driver's car from hitting two new vehicles.
The driver, a man in his 20s, was taken to Southwest General Hospital for treatment and is expected to recover. Police have not announced any charges, nor have they released his name.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash and no other injuries were reported.
Vara said speeding along the I-35 frontage road is an angoing problem.
"There's a lot of cars that are speeding through here, and they're going to kill someone one of these days," he said.
