Two people were injured Wednesday morning in a San Antonio car accident caused by a wrong-way driver.
According to officials with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, emergency dispatchers received a phone call shortly after 5:30 a.m. from someone who reported seeing a wrong-way driver on Loop 1604. When deputies arrived on the scene, they observed the crash site on 1604, just south of Highway 90.
According to Sergeant Aaron Vonmuldau, it appeared the wrong-way driver was heading north in the southbound lane when he collided head-on with a southbound vehicle. Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles with the Jaws of Life, Vonmuldau said.
The two victims were transported by ambulance to University Hospital in stable condition.
Vonmuldau said it appeared the wrong-way driver was under the influence of alcohol.
