Alleged drunk driver totals patrol car on I-10 while deputy helped family

A man and woman were pinned underneath the vehicle, and their daughter, who was in the deputy's car keeping warm, was also hit.

SAN ANTONIO — Three people were injured after a driver crashed into a Bexar County Deputy's unit early Sunday.

The incident took place around 3:30 a.m. on Interstate 10 and Boerne Stage Road. 

Authorities said the deputy was helping the people with their stalled vehicle when a woman in a white sedan pummeled into his patrol car, causing it to roll over.

A man and woman were pinned underneath the vehicle and their 18-year-old daughter, who was in the deputy's car keeping warm, was also hit, BCSO said.

The man was taken to University Hospital by AirLIFE in critical condition. The woman and child were taken to University by ambulance in serious condition. BCSO said the deputy was not hurt.

The driver, Natalie Saldana, will face three drunk driving charges when she makes it out of the hospital. Her bond has been set at $75,000.
