“She walked to the curb dazed and confused,” said Bill Conaway. “There came the other car.”
SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio man believes his wife died after two potentially drunk drivers hit her within seconds on Loop 1604 near Culebra Road.
The crash happened before 2 a.m. on December 16.
Police are still searching for the person who drove a black Camaro into Genoveva Conaway’s limousine. Officers suspect the driver who fled the scene was drunk.
Witnesses initially said the accident threw Conaway out of her car, but the woman’s husband believes she got out of the limousine under her own power and called for help. He suspects that she was hit by a second vehicle while she was standing on the side of the road.
“She walked to the curb dazed and confused. But she had the presence of mind to call me,” Conaway’s husband, Bill, tells KENS 5. “Then the other car came. I can only assume they were drunk or had something to hide because they weren’t there.”
Conaway says he never heard Genoveva’s voice on the phone and assumed she had dialed his number incorrectly. Genoveva’s boss called the next morning and asked why the night cook hadn’t come.
Conaway said police investigators handling the case told him they also believed a second vehicle hit his wife, but SAPD officers did not respond to KENS 5’s request for confirmation.
The driver’s side of the sedan is in mint condition. The damage from the T-Bone collision appears to be survivable, Conaway noted.
“Nobody had to die because of it,” Conaway said. “They didn’t have the decency to stop.”
The couple had been together for almost 25 years. They had five sons.
“I can’t bring her back,” he said. “But if there’s someone else I can help avoid, that’s what I want to do.”
Conaway asked San Antonio drivers to plan their New Year’s Eve celebrations to avoid drunk driving.
“Drinking and driving – it’s not a good combination. It’s devastating,” he said. “I have a newfound insight.”
