A 22-year-old is suspected of driving under the influence after the car he was driving struck a San Antonio woman who was walking in a crosswalk. When the woman was hit she slammed into the windshield of the car as the driver fled from the scene.
The woman was taken to a local hospital and did not receive any life-threatening injuries.
A police officer who happened to be in the area witnessed the hit-and-run and reported it to the department. The driver was not willing to pull over and ultimately stopped when he hit a fire hydrant less than one mile from the scene of the accident.
The driver was taken into custody as he will face several charges for the incident including intoxication and evading arrest.
