SAN ANTONIO -- A driver faces intoxication manslaughter charges following a deadly hit and run accident on the West Side.
Investigators say 17-year-old Nathan Chavez was walking on the sidewalk along the 3100 block of Culebra around 11:30 p.m. Friday, when a 1996 Chevrolet Astro van traveling eastbound veered to the right, jumped the curb, and hit him.
Police say the driver of the van, 42-year-old John Guadalupe Ramirez, then fled the scene of the accident, leaving Chavez in the street. Ramirez was caught a short time later and arrested.
Chavez was taken to University Hospital but later died.
