SAN ANTONIO – A woman who was driving with her dog overnight crashed while trying to avoid hitting something that darted out in front of her vehicle, according to San Antonio police.

Officers said the woman crashed around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday on the access road of the 1000 block of NE Loop 410, between Broadway and Nacogdoches Road on the North Side.

The woman and her dog were traveling on the access road when something ran across the road, police said.

To avoid hitting it, she swerved, jumped the curb and rolled her SUV over into a fence of a nearby Residence Inn. The SUV also took out a light pole in the parking lot.

The woman was not injured, police said.

At this time it is unclear what darted across the street. Police said intoxication is not a factor in this incident.
