Hays County Sheriff’s deputies charged an 18-year-old San Antonio woman with driving while intoxicated after rescuing her from an overturned vehicle in the San Marcos River.
Law enforcement officials received a call at 5:35 a.m. Saturday reporting a collision at the Old Bastrop Highway, County Road 266, low-water crossing at the San Marcos River. The caller reported a car overturned in the water and screams for help were being heard.
When deputies arrived on the scene they found that a passenger escaped the vehicle, but the driver, Allison Anne Berry, was still trapped inside.
Deputies were unable to open the driver’s door, but were able to confirm that Berry was alive. Firefighters were later able to cut her loose from the vehicle.
Berry was transported to Central Texas Medical Center with minor injuries, treated and then arrested on the class B Misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated, a class B Misdemeanor, and released on $3,000 bond.
