SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office has released the name of a driver who was killed in a crash Friday night on the city’s Northwest Side.

The victim was identified as Carisa Allen Kohutek, 36.

Kohutek was a teacher at Brandeis High School for nearly seven years, North Side Independent School District spokesman Barry Perez said. She taught history and geography from August 2012 until June 2019.

Police said Kohutek was killed after she crashed her vehicle into a ditch off Interstate 10 near Casa Bella and UTSA Boulevard.

Kohutek was pronounced dead at the scene. The ME’s office said she died of blunt force head trauma.

Alcohol didn’t not appear to be a factor in the crash, police said.
