18-wheeler crashes into hotel pool in San Antonio, 3 injured




A car crash in San Antonio ended with the front end of an 18-wheeler inside a hotel pool early Saturday morning, leaving three people injured.

The tractor-trailer collided with a small sedan on an access road off Interstate 35 around 3 a.m. near the Hallmark Inn and Suites hotel, CNN reported.

During the collision, the sedan was pinned between the 18-wheeler and a concrete wall, according to local ABC affiliate KSAT. The vehicles took out a utility pole too.

But the concrete wall was not enough to keep up back the tractor-trailer, which slammed by it and into an empty hotel pool, KSAT reported.

A 39-year-old woman was walking down the road at the time and was hospitalized in basic condition, according to CNN. Two people in the sedan were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the tractor-trailer hopped out uninjured, KSAT reported. San Antonio police are investigating the crash.
