SAN ANTONIO – Two people, including a 17-year-old driver, were hospitalized following a rollover crash on Highway 281 early Monday morning, San Antonio police said.
The crash occurred around 3 a.m. in the 13600 block of U.S. Highway 281 North, near Bitters Road.
According to police, the 17-year-old and a passenger were traveling southbound on Highway 281 in a Hyundai Sonata when, for an unknown reason, they drove off the highway.
Police said their car was just north of the Bitters Road overpass when the teen drove in the grassy median between the highway and the access road, narrowly missing an overhead sign. That’s when, police said, the sedan drove off the edge of an embankment on the north side of Bitters Road and then flipped over.
SAPD said both occupants inside the vehicle were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash and were taken to an area hospital by EMS in stable condition.
