SAN ANTONIO – A man in his 30s had to be cut from his vehicle following a crash on Loop 1604 late Wednesday night, San Antonio police said.

The crash occurred around 11:45 p.m. in the 8000 block of North Loop 1604, just before Babcock Road on the city’s North Side.

According to police, the male driver of a 2009 Nissan Armanda was traveling eastbound and had a collision with a truck on the main lanes of the highway.

Police said the driver failed to drive in a single lane and struck the right rear corner of a Ford F-150, which was also traveling eastbound in a separate lane. The Nissan drove off the highway, down an embankment and struck a tree before finally coming to a stop in a grassy median between the main lanes of the highway and the access road, police said.

SAPD said the man had to be extracted from the SUV by firefighters. He was taken to University Hospital in critical condition.

The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department and EMS all answered the call.

There were no reports of other injuries, and no criminal charges are pending, police said.
