San Antonio, TX (December 31, 2020) – Police have identified the man who died during a car accident that might have been the result of a combination of drugs, alcohol, and speeding.

Donaldson lost control of the Ford Explorer he was driving, causing it to flip and throw him from the vehicle. He died en route to a local hospital.   

The three passengers in the Explorer, a 47-year-old woman from Lubbock, a 41-year old man from San Antonio, and a 36-year old woman from Cibolo, were all transported via ambulances to area hospitals.

The woman from Lubbock sustained severe injuries. The other passengers, who were both in the back seat, suffered injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.

An autopsy will be conducted on Donaldson.
