SAN ANTONIO — Two people were killed in a car crash on the far south side, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said.

The crash happened around 2 a.m. in the 2800 block of South Loop 1604 near Jett Road on Sunday. When BCSO and Bexar County Fire Department arrived at the accident scene, one car was on fire.
