Two Hospitalized after San Antonio Crash on SW Military Drive near Yarrow Boulevard

San Antonio, Texas (March 18, 2023) – Two people were hospitalized after a Friday night traffic accident in San Antonio, according to San Antonio police.

The wreck occurred just after 11:00 p.m. Friday, March 16, in the 2700 block of SW Military Drive near Yarrow Boulevard.

Police said a Dodge Challenger was speeding on eastbound Military Drive when the driver lost control and veered into the westbound lanes, where it struck a Honda Civic that was waiting at a red light to turn left onto Yarrow Boulevard.

The Challenger then crashed into the driver’s side of the Civic, pinning the driver inside. The impact pushed the Civic into a Volkswagen that was stopped behind it.

Firefighters responded to the scene and extracted the driver of the Civic, a 27-year-old man. He was then taken to University Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.

A passenger in the Challenger suffered minor injuries and was taken to Texas Vista Medical Center.

The driver of the Challenger was involved in a hit-and-run crash before this crash. The unidentified driver was arrested and charged with failure to stop and give information and reckless driving.

The crash remains under investigation.
