SAN ANTONIO TEXAS - San Antonio police officer Ernesto Vasquez died Sunday, months after he was run over by his common law wife. "He's been in a convalescent home for the last several months and he really came out of his coma," Police Chief William McManus said.
Vasquez was an eight-year veteran at SAPD and assigned to north patrol. Vasquez was off duty when he was hit by an SUV while attempting to walk across the 12600 block of Blanco Road around 11 p.m. on New Year's Eve.
The person charged in the crime was identified as Diana Lopez, his common law wife. Lopez was arrested in Laredo, Texas, nearly two months after Vasquez was run over.
