SAN ANTONIO, TX (January 13, 2023) – San Antonio Police officers arrested 24-year-old Tony Hughes following a head-on crash on Highway 90 on January 9.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the collision happened in 7500 block of the Highway 90 access road. Based on a report, Hughes was trying to get away from officers when he started driving the wrong-way on the access road.
An officer driving in the opposite lane was able to avoid him but a 27-year-old woman driving a white car behind the police unit slammed into Hughes’ car head-on. Subsequently, Hughes’ car hit a telephone pole and rolled several times before coming to a stop.
As a result, crews took the woman in the second vehicle to the hospital for treatment. Police said she suffered non-serious injuries.
