BCSO deputies searching for driver responsible


SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office is searching for the driver who deputies said killed a 23-year-old woman after striking her from behind.

BCSO deputies said the victim, identified by the Bexar County medical examiner's office as Jenise Morales, was walking on the side of the road FM 1560 near Welch Terrace when an unidentified vehicle hit her.

The driver of the vehicle did not render aid and fled the scene, deputies said.

According to BCSO, Morales was pronounced dead shortly after emergency medical services arrived at the location around 1 a.m.

Deputies said the only information provided by a witness was of a dark-colored vehicle leaving the area. BCSO hopes to gather surveillance footage from the nearby businesses to get a better description of the vehicle.
