SAN ANTONIO -- A father and his 3-year-old son died after they and two other family members were hit by a car on the Northeast Side Thursday afternoon.
The accident happened just after 4:00 p.m. near Interstate 10 East and North Foster Road. Police say 30-year-old Jose Beltran, his wife Kristy Vergara, and their two children, 4-year-old Adrian Beltran and 3-year-old Eli Beltran, were walking on the sidewalk when they were struck by a Cadillac. Investigators say the car hit a pole before crashing into the family. Deputies believe the woman driving may have been on her cell phone.
Jose Beltan was hit from behind and killed on impact. Both boys were taken to University Hospital. Eli died of his injuries a short time later. Adrian, who suffered several broken bones, remains in critical condition.
Vergara, who is 8 months pregnant, was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC). News 4 WOAI was told her water broke at the accident scene, and she is expected to give birth early within the next few days.
