Weekend wrecks take toll
By Eva Ruth Moravec - Express-News

Three separate accidents Saturday night and early Sunday morning left four people dead and two suspected of drunken driving.

San Antonio police believe Paulino Cruz Jr., 18, was speeding, intoxicated and fatigued around 3 a.m. Sunday, when he collided with a red Ford Focus on the South Side — an accident that resulted in three deaths. He faces two counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault in connection with the crash, which took place in the 700 block of Southeast Military Drive.

Authorities have not released the names of two people, a man and a woman, who were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
