Police arrested two men after they fled a hit-and-run accident by driving onto this campus Wednesday night.

San Antonio police officers received a call for a hit-and-run at 9:24 p.m. A Honda Accord was heading north on San Pedro Avenue in the right lane when another car in the left lane, a Buick Lezebra, decided to make a right turn and hit the driver’s side on the corner of West Park Avenue.

No one was injured. The driver of the vehicle that was hit, Ernest Antu, 27, was on his way home and said the other car veered into Antu’s lane and hit him.

“I noticed him swerving before the collision, but then I saw him straighten out, then he hit me and took off,” Antu said.

The two suspects, who drove onto campus, were caught in Lot 21 by Alamo Colleges bicycle police Emily Gonzales and Jacob Escobedo.

San Antonio Police Officer Johnson said the driver who caused the accident had a warrant for DWI and was driving without a license.

“He said he was paranoid and they were tired,” Johnson said of the suspects.

SAPD did not return the Ranger’s call this morning to release the names of the two suspects.
