SAN ANTONIO – A woman in her mid 20s had to be extracted from her car following a rollover crash early Thursday morning, San Antonio police said.

The crash happened around 2:45 a.m. on Highway 90 near Nogalitos Street on the city’s South Side.

According to police, the woman was driving a 2015 Honda Civic eastbound on Highway 90 and was traveling at a high-rate of speed when she crashed into the back of a sedan with two women.

Police said the impact caused both vehicles to lose control and the Honda Civic veered to the right across all lanes, hitting a concrete wall and rolling over. The other vehicle spun to an uncontrolled stop across some of the other lanes, police said.

SAPD said the driver of the Honda Civic was not wearing a seatbelt and was pinned under the driver’s side dashboard. Firefighters had to work to cut her out of the vehicle.

The unidentified woman was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center, where she is currently listed in critical condition.

The two women inside the other car were checked out by EMS at the scene, but not taken to a hospital.

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

Police did not say what, if any charges are expected to be filed.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing, police said.
