San Antonio police also are investigating the crash, which happened around 10 p.m. Tuesday on Basse Road near McCullough.

They say it appears the driver of a car was traveling westbound and may have been speeding before she lost control, rolling her car and hitting a cyclist on the side of the road.

That 35-year-old woman and a baby in the car with her both suffered injuries.

They were taken to a hospital by ambulance.

At the scene Wednesday morning, the signs of the crash were obvious.

Red paint on the ground showed the path the car took, rolling across all lanes of the road, ripping two heavy wooden barricades out of the ground and smashing into a large tree.

Police say both the car and bicycle were heading west on Basse Road at the time, approaching McCullough Road.

They did not know right away exactly what caused the driver to swerve, setting the deadly crash in motion.

The driver of the Camry was found to be intoxicated and was booked by proxy for intoxication manslaughter and endangering child, police said. She has not yet been identified.
