SAN ANTONIO – A man is hospitalized after San Antonio police said he crashed his vehicle into Singhs Vietnamese restaurant on N. St. Mary’s Street.
The incident happened around 2 a.m., Sunday, on St. Mary’s and E. Russell.
Police said the man was driving at a high rate of speed, drove through a stop sign and then crashed into the restaurant. The man was taken to the Brooke Army Medical Center in stable condition.
Officials said he’ll be evaluated for DWI and multiple charges are pending.
We spoke with other businesses on the St. Mary’s strip Sunday afternoon, and they said the area is a bit worrisome at night when the crowds set in.
“It’s scary because the amount of pedestrians that are out on the road and the amount of people that have obviously been drinking... it’s very concerning,” said Midnight Swim bartender Cristina Ortiz.
Some customers commented on the restaurant’s latest social media post on Facebook, asking for ways they can help out after the crash. However, the restaurant hasn’t yet spoken out on the incident.
Businesses in the area said they appreciate people showing their support.
“We appreciate the people coming out here. We just want it to be safe for them,” said The Mix General Manager Andrew Gonzales.
