SAN ANTONIO – Three women are hospitalized after a multi-vehicle crash on the East Side, one of which is in critical condition, according to San Antonio police.

The crash happened around 12:50 a.m., Sunday, on I-10 and Ackerman.

According to police, after the crash happened, one driver called one of her family members for help.

When her family member arrived at the scene, police said she parked behind the last vehicle that was involved in the crash.

Authorities said the family member had tools in her trunk and when she got out of her vehicle and went to remove them from the trunk, another vehicle on the highway rear-ended her car, pinning her to the trunk.

The family member was taken to the Brooke Army Medical Center in critical condition.

Two other women involved in the crash were taken to Northeast Baptist Hospital in stable condition, police said.

The driver of the vehicle that rear-ended the family member’s car is facing a possible DWI charge, according to officials.
