A 27-year-old police officer is dead after a sport utility vehicle driven by a suspected drunken driver slammed into her patrol car while going the wrong way without lights on a San Antonio freeway.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus says Officer Stephanie Ann Brown died shortly after the 2 a.m. Tuesday crash on Interstate 37 just northeast of downtown.

Also killed was the driver of the SUV, 31-year-old Christopher David Baldaramos.

McManus says Brown was a three-year police veteran working a shift as a substitute for another officer and was responding to a reported officer in trouble when the crash happened.

Court documents show that Baldaramos was serving probation from a September "no contest" plea to driving while intoxicated.
