A man who was hit by a suspected drunk driver while he worked on a disabled car along Loop 410 has died.

Mauricio Rodriguez Zuniga, 26, was standing next to the car on the shoulder of Loop 410 near Vance Jackson Road at about 10:30 p.m. when he was hit by a car that swerved over from the main lanes, according to the San Antonio Police Department.

He was taken to University Hospital where he died about two hours later.

Investigators believe the driver of the car that hit him, identified as 38-year-old Blanca Juanita Torres, was driving drunk.

She faces a charge of intoxication manslaughter.
