SAN ANTONIO – Two people were seriously injured in what accident investigators are calling a violent head-on crash near the University of Texas-San Antonio.

The wreck happened around 8:50 a.m. in the 5800 block of UTSA Boulevard, just west of Interstate 10, said San Antonio Police Officer Douglas Greene.

Greene said a silver Honda Civic was traveling east when the driver lost control on the wet roadway, crossed into oncoming traffic and struck a car driven by a 21-year-old woman who was not wearing a seatbelt.

The 21-year-old woman was taken to University Hospital in critical condition.

The driver of the Civic was also seriously injured and taken to University Hospital.

Investigators do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

UTSA Boulevard was temporarily shut down in both directions, but both lanes were expected to re-open by 11 a.m.
