SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police have arrested a man accused of stealing another's vehicle and crashing it into a car wash on the city's South Side.

The incident occurred just before 7 a.m. Tuesday at an Exxon gas station at the corner of E. Southcross and South New Braunfels Avenue.

According to police, the suspect jumped into another man's vehicle and then a struggle began. That's when, police said, the victim jumped out of the car -- right before the suspect crashed it into the gas station's car wash.
