SAN ANTONIO – A woman was taken to the hospital overnight after San Antonio police say she crashed her vehicle at a high rate of speed on the North Side.

The crash happened around 2:45 a.m. Tuesday at Encanta and Leonhardt Road, not far from Thousand Oaks Drive.

An officer at the scene said the woman was traveling on Leonhardt and wrecked out when she came upon a corner.

Her vehicle slammed into a utility pole, where a homeless man was sleeping, but he was not injured, police said.

The driver, believed to be in her late 20s or early 30s, was taken to the hospital due to a laceration on her face in which her cheekbone was exposed.

Crews with CPS Energy were on the scene to repair the pole.
