Woman dies after fiery crash and rollover at Hwy 281, Loop 410 on North Side

Medical Examiner’s Office identified her as Eden Nuval, 76

SAN ANTONIO – A 76-year-old woman has died from her injuries after a fiery rollover crash at the Interstate 281 and Loop 410 interchange.

The crash happened just after 3 a.m. Friday on a ramp connecting southbound Highway 281 to NW Loop 410.

A preliminary report from San Antonio police states the woman, identified by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office as Eden Nuval, was driving a Hyundai Santa Cruz on the ramp when a Ford Bronco traveling in the same direction struck the Santa Cruz.

The impact caused the Santa Cruz to crash into a barrier and roll over, and the driver of the Bronco fled without rendering aid, police said. The Bronco then became fully engulfed in flames.

Nuval was taken to University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead just before 4 a.m., the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

A battalion chief initially said another person was taken to the hospital, but information on their condition is unknown.

The driver of the Bronco has not been located, authorities said. Once found, that person will be charged with failure to stop and render aid resulting in death.
