November 16, 2018

A single-car accident shut down part of westbound Wurzbach Parkway and left one man in critical condition Thursday evening on the North Side.

San Antonio police said the man was driving on Wurzbach Parkway when he may have struck a barrier at about 8:30 p.m. and went off the road at the Nacogdoches off-ramp.

The man was trapped in the vehicle until San Antonio firefighters pried the door open to rescue him.

He was taken to University Hospital in critical condition, police said.

Traffic investigation detectives shut down the westbound lanes to determine what sent the driver off the road.
