Teen struck, killed on Loop 410 identified

Medical Examiner: Jeffrey Perez, 16, hit by car while walking on highway

The Bexar County Medical Examiner has identified the teen who was killed early Monday morning while walking on Southwest Loop 410.

San Antonio Police Department spokesman Sgt. Javier Salazar said the teen, identified on Friday as 16-year-old Jeffrey Perez, was reported to have been walking in the middle of Loop 410 near Somerset Road when he was struck by a motorist.

Salazar said police investigators received several calls reporting the teen's erratic behavior.

He said the driver who hit the teen stopped, but there were reports of other drivers that hit him as well and didn't stop.

After the incident, eastbound lanes of Loop 410 were shut down, but were reopened soon after.
