Police have determined that the driver in a single-vehicle crash on Thursday was driving under the influence. The accident occurred North of downtown around 1:45 a.m. The 23-year-old woman passenger was thrown through the windshield when the vehicle, driven by a local 36-year-old, spun out of control and hit a utility pole on San Pedro Avenue.
The driver is hospitalized and recovering from serious injuries but has still been charged with intoxicated manslaughter. In a twist of irony, the crash happened later on the day that Mothers Against Drunk Driving, in conjunction with the San Antonio police department, began a large-scale campaign against drunk Fiesta drivers getting behind the wheel.
