SAN ANTONIO — Police and fire crews responded to a crash on the city's northwest side Tuesday afternoon, where a vehicle slammed into a VIA bus stop. One of the victims, a 54-year-old man, died as a result of his injuries on Wednesday morning.
The Medical Examiner's Office identified him as Robert Nunez.
According to a VIA spokesperson, a vehicle driving down Vance Jackson near I-10 struck another vehicle, veered into oncoming traffic, hit a utility pole and crashed into the bus stop.
Witnesses told KENS 5 that man was seen pinned between a black truck and the bus stop. A San Antonio Fire Department spokesperson said two people were transported to area hospitals with serious injuries.
The San Antonio Police Department released more details in a preliminary report, saying the driver of a Ford Ranger was northbound in the 1400 block of Vance Jackson, driving himself to a clinic because he sustained an injury. Nunez was described as a pedestrian who was standing beside a bus bench.
The report goes on to say, "Reportedly, the driver of the Ranger passed out, crossed the southbound lanes of Vance Jackson, struck a utility pole and then the complainant pinning him between the Ranger and the bus bench."
Nunez was taken to University Hospital and he died as a result of his injuries on Wednesday morning.
