SAN ANTONIO – A driver killed in an early-morning vehicle crash Saturday morning was identified by the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office on Sunday.

Fabian Mederos, 38, died in a one-vehicle accident just after 2 a.m. in the 6100 block of the Northwest Loop 410 frontage road.

According to police, Mederos lost control of his vehicle, then hit a TransGuide post box. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger inside the vehicle was transported to University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after being ejected from the vehicle.
