Man, woman killed after being struck by van on Northeast Side, police say

The pair left their vehicle in the middle of the highway and exited before being struck by the van

A man and a woman were fatally struck by a van while standing in the middle of a Northeast Side highway early Saturday, according to San Antonio police.

The incident happened around 12:54 a.m. at Interstate 35 North and Eisenhauer Road.

Police said the man and a woman were heading northbound on the interstate in a Ford Escape when they crashed into a Chevrolet.

The driver of the Chevrolet was able to move the vehicle to the shoulder of the road, but the Ford came to a stop in the main lanes of the highway, according to officials.

The man and woman got out of the Ford to assess the damage when a 2012 Nissan van that was traveling in the same lane crashed into them, SAPD said.

Both the man and the woman were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Nissan pulled over and stayed at the scene for questioning.

The investigation continues.
