A pair of drivers were hospitalized Monday morning following separate crashes that San Antonio police said possibly involved drugs or alcohol.
The first accident occurred just before 11 p.m. Sunday, when a 20-year-old driver heading south on Harry Wurzbach Road from Loop 410 drove around a curve too fast, police said.
The driver lost control of his car, slid into a VIA bus bench and then crashed into a utility pole before finally coming to a stop in a ditch.
"There is information in the case that that person may have been under the influence and actually actively using inhalants at the time of the crash," said Sgt. Javier Salazar of the San Antonio Police Department.
Police said the driver was transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment and for a blood draw to check for alcohol.
A few hours later, SAPD officers responded to another major crash on the North Side.
Police said a driver crashed on the Highway 281 southbound access road at Donella Drive in a car that had already been in a previous accident.
Officers said the 28-year-old driver was traveling on three tires and a rim when the vehicle veered to the left, struck a guardrail and then rolled over.
Paramedics transported the driver to North Central Baptist Hospital for treatment and for a blood draw. San Antonio police said the driver had two prior DWIs.
At around 1:45 a.m., police arrested 33-year-old Michael Wayne Rice after he ran into a parked pickup truck on Broadway at Ceegee.
San Antonio police said the constable was working off-duty and assisting with a lane closure on Broadway when her truck was rear-ended.
Police said the constable had placed cones on the road and had the flashing lights on at the time of the crash, but was not inside the truck or injured.
"It is somewhat disturbing that here's an emergency vehicle for all intents and purposes with emergency lights activated, and this person was so intoxicated that they couldn't even see that," Salazar said.
Rice was the only person inside the other car and was taken into custody following the crash.
