A man has died and a woman has been charged with intoxication manslaughter following a Saturday afternoon crash on the Northeast Side.
Lacy Lynd Guerrero, 35, was headed north on Uhr Lane around 2:45 p.m. when she crashed into a white Hyundai headed east on Thousand Oaks Drive, according to police.
A female driver and male passenger were inside the sedan. Both were injured, and the man, 32-year-old Cesar Rivera, died later of head injuries, according to the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Witnesses told officers Guerrero ran a red light.
Immediately after the crash, Guerrero left her truck and tried to find someone to drive her from the scene, authorities said. Officers, however, said they were able to catch up to her and take her into custody.
A field sobriety test was administered at the scene.
If convicted of intoxication manslaughter, Guerrero could face up to 20 years in prison. She was also charged with intoxication assault and failure to stop and render aid.
As of Tuesday, she was still being held in the Bexar County Jail on bail totaling $90,000.
