SAN ANTONIO - Two women are dead after the SUV they were in went off a turnaround ramp on Interstate 10 on the Northwest Side and landed on the highway.
Emergency responders were called to Interstate 10 at the Wurzbach Road exit around 3:30 a.m. Friday. Police say a Chevrolet Trailblazer was traveling eastbound along the Interstate 10 access road, when the driver tried to take the turnaround at Ramsgate and lost control of the SUV. The SUV then went off the road, hit and went over a concrete barrier, and fell 30 feet onto the highway. The SUV came to a rest on its roof in the middle of the Wurzbach Road exit.
The female passenger in the SUV was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was taken to University Hospital and died on arrival.
Police say neither of the women was wearing a seatbelt, and it's unclear if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
