SAN ANTONIO – A 44-year-old woman was taken to an area hospital after being struck in a hit-and-run crash early Friday morning, San Antonio police said.

The crash occurred around 2 a.m. on South General McMullen Drive near Weir Avenue and Highway 90 on the city’s West Side.

According to police, the woman was trying to cross the street from west to east when she was hit by the vehicle. Police said the woman did not check to see if southbound traffic had a green light, and instead tried to cross the roadway.

SAPD said as the woman got to the southbound side of the roadway, a blue vehicle hit her. The driver briefly stopped in a parking lot before fleeing westbound on Weir Avenue without helping, police said.

The victim was taken by EMS to University Hospital for her injuries. Her condition is not currently known.

The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department and EMS all answered the call.

When found, the driver may face a charge of failing to stop and render aid. The investigation is ongoing, police said.
