SAN ANTONIO — A woman has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid after police say she hit and killed a woman waiting at a bus stop before fleeing the scene.

Investigators said that shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday, a car was traveling at a high rate of speed and attempting to pass a car by using the center turn lane near the intersection of Culebra and N. Navidad. They said it veered into oncoming traffic, hit the curb, went onto the sidewalk and struck a woman sitting on the VIA bus bench before hitting multiple signs and stopping against a fence.

Police said that the driver of the car and her boyfriend left the car and ran, but were caught by officers a few blocks away. The driver was evaluated for signs of intoxication and booked, and her boyfriend was also charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon and drug possession.

The investigation is still ongoing, and the victim and suspects have not yet been identified.
