Body of older man found in car pulled out of west-side pond

Rescue crew responded to a call for a vehicle that had been driven into a pond at the Stablewood Farms Park on Crooked Trail.

SAN ANTONIO — The body of a 68-year-old man was found inside a vehicle that was driven into a pond early Thursday on the west side of town.

Rescue crews responded to a call around 3:30 a.m. for reports of a car driving into a pond on the 3900 block of Crooked Trail at the Stablewood Farms Park.

San Antonio Police say they received the call from the driver of the car, later identified as Robert Bambic. He was driving his vehicle on a gravel walking trail on the northeast side of the pond at Sablewood Farms Park, officials said. 

For some reason, Bambic drove into the pond and his vehicle became submerged. His body was pulled from the car after officials located the vehicle and pulled it from the pond.
