San Antonio Mayor Not Hurt in Wreck, 4 Others Injured

Authorities say San Antonio's mayor was not hurt but four others were injured during a traffic accident.

KENS-TV reports Mayor Ivy Taylor was a passenger in a city vehicle that collided with a convertible at an intersection Saturday afternoon.

San Antonio Police Department Chief Anthony Trevino says details are conflicting about who caused the accident. Some witnesses said the city vehicle had the right of way while others said the convertible did.

Trevino says the driver of the convertible got out and charged at officers who make up the mayor's security detail. Police say the man was briefly handcuffed until he calmed down.

The convertible's driver and two others in the vehicle were taken to a local hospital.

Trevino says one officer in Taylor's protective detail sustained minor injuries.
