SAN ANTONIO — An adult and his young passenger were killed Friday evening after their SUV flew off of an embankment, landed on train tracks, then got hit by a train in San Antonio, officials say.
San Antonio Police said they originally received a call that a black Land Rover was driving erratically causing people to drive into the shoulder on I-35.
Moments later, another call was made to 911 to report the vehicle had crashed. Police said they were told that the SUV hit a guardrail on I-37 S and Loop 1604, continued down into a grassy area and then fell off a nearby embankment.
The SUV then came to a rest on train tracks, but a train came and hit the SUV killing two people inside.
The victims have been identified as 4-year-old Aurelius Marceau Vincent-Ortiz-Romo and Andre Miles Romo, 37.
