3 kids hit by a car while walking to school on city’s South Side, police say

Victims ages 5, 8, 13 in stable condition after being hit in 8900 block of Somerset Road

SAN ANTONIO – Two boys and a female teenager were hit by a car while walking to school Friday morning on the city’s South Side.

According to San Antonio police, the boys, ages 5 and 8, and a 13-year-old girl were walking northeast in the 8900 block of Somerset Road around 7 a.m. when a Hyundai Accent traveling in the same direction struck them.

The victims were walking on the street and not on the sidewalk “because the conditions were not ideal on the sidewalk,” police said. The area was also not well lit, and the driver told police that he didn’t see the victims and thought he had hit a dog. The driver stopped and tried to help, and got someone to call 911.

All victims were taken to University Hospital in stable condition, police said.

No charges are expected to be filed against the driver.
