SAN ANTONIO — A woman believed to be in her 40s or 50s was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries this morning after investigators said she was hit by a vehicle while crossing the street.

The incident happened around 10 a.m. in the 7000 block of Westfield near West Military Drive on the city's west side, just a few blocks north of Lackland Air Force Base.

The victim was transported to University Hospital with what's being described by a San Antonio Fire Department spokesperson as "mildly severe wounds."

Officials said it is unknown if the woman was dragged, but they said she lives in the area.

Witnesses told police they believe they saw a dark grey SUV leave the scene. Detectives are looking for surveillance footage. They also said they believe the driver may have been distracted, but the person is expected to face charges.
