Woman killed after multi-collision car crash near downtown

Details are limited but a woman was killed as a result of the crash.

SAN ANTONIO — One woman was killed and others were injured after a chain reaction crash near downtown Saturday, police say.

Around 9 p.m., the San Antonio Fire Department and the San Antonio Police Department responded to a five car backup on Interstate 37 North and Florida Street.

Police said traffic was backing up on the highway from a concert at the Alamodome which caused an initial crash. A pickup truck tried to swerved to avoid the collision, but it caused a chain reaction. 

As a result of the crashes, two people were taken to the hospital with unknown injuries but police said a woman in her 20s died in the crash.
