Tragic accident that occurred on January 1st, in San Antonio, Texas. The San Antonio Police Department arrested 28-year-old Jessica Claire, a civilian employee of the department, after an alleged hit-and-run crash that sent a pedestrian to the hospital with injuries. Police said Claire struck a man with her vehicle in the 400 block of Devine Street as he was setting off fireworks in the street. Claire left the scene but was followed by a witness in another vehicle. The suspect reportedly drove the wrong way down Florida Street. The witness eventually pulled in front of Claire's vehicle and a collision ensued. The witness held Claire, and a 19-year-old passenger, at gunpoint until officers arrived, police said. The male pedestrian was transported to Brooke Army Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening head injuries. Claire was arrested and charged with failure to stop and render aid. She also was booked on three outstanding traffic warrants, reports said. A handgun and bullets were found in Claire's vehicle during a search, but it does not appear she was charged for the possession. We send our thoughts and prayers to the victim.
