SAN ANTONIO — Officials with the San Antonio Fire Department confirmed that a driver was ejected from their vehicle and killed in a rollover accident on I-10 on Friday. The driver has been identified as 30-year-old Francisco Hernandez.
The incident occurred shortly after 5 p.m. Officials have yet to determine what caused the driver to lose control near the Fresno Ave. on the eastbound side of the interstate.
Emergency crews shut down that side of I-10 and diverted traffic onto the frontage road. Traffic was at a standstill for several miles, stretching as far back as Boerne. Some drivers reported to KENS 5 that they were at risk of running out of fuel as they waited in the congestion.
