Fatal accident on i35 today leaves two dead and four hurt after SUV tries to escape cops in San Antonio

TWO people were killed and four others injured after an SVU attempted to escape police officials on a major highway in Texas.

The fatal crash unfolded Wednesday morning on Interstate 35 in San Antonio after an officer on patrol spotted the SUV driving erratically.

According to the San Antonio Police Department, the responding officer followed the SUV and tried to make a traffic stop by activating the patrol car’s lights.

However, the officer did not initiate a chase as the SUV driver sped away and tried to enter the highway.

As a result, the driver struck a metal barrier, causing the SUV to flip over and ejected two men inside the car.

Officials said the two men died at the scene.
