SAN ANTONIO – Two people are dead following a rollover vehicle crash on the city’s South Side late Wednesday night, according to San Antonio police.
The incident occurred around 10 p.m. in the 3300 block of Research Plaza, not far from South New Braunfels Avenue and Mission Trail Baptist Hospital.
According to police, officers responded after receiving word of a Dodge Challenger driving off the road and crashing into a pond or creek.
Police said the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound when it bottomed out as it drove through the intersection. That’s when, police say, the driver lost control and hit a curb, crashing the vehicle into a tree and then rolling into a nearby pond upside down.
Firefighters found both a man and woman inside the Challenger. Both were pronounced dead at the scene. The names and ages of the two people killed have not been released.
The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department and EMS all answered the call.
The investigation is ongoing, police said.
