SAN ANTONIO – A woman who was struck by an SUV while crossing a West Side street died at the hospital early Wednesday morning.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office identifed the victim as 58-year-old Dolores Soto.

San Antonio police said Soto was struck around 9 p.m. by an SUV while crossing Southwest 21st Street near West Commerce and Buena Vista.

She was transported to University Hospital, but pronounced dead just after 2 a.m.

Police said the driver stopped to render aid and was not expected to face charges because the accident could not be avoided.

A police report stated Soto was not in a crosswalk. The area was poorly lit and Soto was wearing dark clothing.
