Vehicle Plunges 20 Feet, Driver OK


SAN ANTONIO, (UPI) — A Texas police officer said it was “amazing” a woman was not seriously injured in her vehicle’s 20-foot plunge from Interstate 10 onto a creek bank.

San Antonio police said the woman, who is in her 50s, was traveling west Sunday near Foster Road when she lost control about 4:25 p.m. and the Suburban hopped a guardrail, the Houston Chronicle reported Monday.

Police said the vehicle went airborne and landed on the bank of Rosillo Creek.

The driver, whose name was not released, was treated for minor injuries at San Antonio Military Medical Center.

“She didn’t remember anything except being airborne,” an officer said at the scene. “It’s amazing she wasn’t really injured, considering what happened.”
