SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal crash near downtown San Antonio early Thursday morning.

A woman riding in the car was killed and the driver, a 19-year-old man, was taken to the hospital.

KSAT TV reports the driver had outstanding warrants.

A deputy had tried to pull the car over because it was going around 40 miles per hour on the highway, but the driver sped up just before the crash.
