3 siblings out running errand killed in rollover crash on city’s Northeast Side, relatives say

Family’s car T-boned by SUV

SAN ANTONIO – A crash on the city’s Northeast Side has killed three members of a family, all siblings, according to relatives.

The crash happened after 10 p.m. Sunday on Thousand Oaks, just east of Perrin Beitel Road.

San Antonio police say all three of the people who were killed were in a sedan that was T-boned by an SUV.

Police say the car driver was attempting to cross Thousand Oaks at Alamo Blanco when she entered the path of the other vehicle.

The impact caused the car to roll over and slam into a utility pole, knocking down both the pole and some power lines.

The people in the car died at the scene.

Relatives who stopped by in disbelief early Monday morning said the driver was a 20-year-old woman who was in the car with her two brothers, ages 10 and 17.

They say the siblings were on their way to a nearby store to get medicine for their mother when the crash happened.

They were only a few blocks from their home at the time, relatives say.

The family members say when the trio did not return home in a timely fashion, their mother went out to look for them and stumbled upon the horrific crash scene.

The driver of the SUV was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Police say the power lines also damaged a passing pickup as they fell down.

As of Monday morning, Thousand Oaks remained closed in the area near Alamo Blanco due to the downed utility pole and power lines.
