The SAEN never bothered to ask what relation Christina Cuellar was to Tony. Probably his wife, poor girl.

SAN ANTONIO -- A crash between two intoxicated motorists driving pickup trucks early Friday on the far North Side left a woman with a broken neck, police said.

Tony Cuellar, 23, was driving a Chevrolet pickup with an extended cab south in the 18400 block of U.S. 281 just before 2:30 a.m., police said. Cuellar was "highly intoxicated" and had Christina Cuellar, 22, riding in the backseat, according to police.

Tony Cuellar believed he had a flat tire and stopped in an active traffic lane of the highway, at the crest of a hill, according to police. The pickup was black and the highway lights were not working, police said.

The driver of a Ford F-150 headed southbound, who police said was also intoxicated, did not see Cuellar's pickup and slammed into the back of it.

Christina Cuellar's neck was broken in the crash. She was being treated Friday but her condition was not released.

Emergency medial [sic] technicians took all the occupants of both trucks to area hospitals.

Tony Cuellar was charged with intoxication assault. Bail was set at $50,000.

The driver of the F-150 will face DWI charges, according to police.
