One man is dead and another man is hospitalized after a crash on the East Side, according to San Antonio police.

The crash happened around 7 p.m., Saturday on Bookertee Road and F Street.

The truck came to a stop on the side of the road and the driver was ejected, according to officials. The impact resulted in the death of the driver, a 52-year-old man.

The front-seat passenger, another man, was taken by EMS to an area hospital for treatment of severe injuries, according to authorities.

It’s unclear what led to the crash at this time, and no other vehicles were involved.

As of around 8 p.m., the scene was still being processed.
