SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are investigating the cause of a rollover crash early Thursday morning that left a woman dead on the city’s Northwest side.

Police say that woman was driving along the eastbound Interstate 10 access road between Vance Jackson and West Avenue when she lost control of her 1999 Ford Mustang convertible around 12:30 a.m.

The convertible swerved across a lane, jumped a curb, drove through some grass and crashed into a concrete barrier that divides the access road and ramp, police said.

It then rolled over, landing on a grassy hill alongside the highway.

Paramedics who were called to the crash site tried to save the woman, but were not able to do so. She died at the scene.

SAPD said the woman was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The woman was in her 40s, although they did not release her name right away.

It does not appear there were any other vehicles involved.
