SAN ANTONIA – In the afternoon before Mother’s Day, 44-year-old Jessica Harper died a mile from her home in an accident on the West Side.

The accident happened on Saturday at the intersection of Culebra Road and Alamo Downs Parkway.

San Antonio police said a witness told them a gray Ford Focus was turning on the Culebra when a black GMC Yukon drove at a red light and collided with a Focus.

Harper and her mother were in focus. She died at the hospital and her mother broke her shoulder.

Police said the Yukon driver took off on foot. Authorities conducted a search on the ground and in the air with their helicopter, but did not catch the suspect.

“You took someone’s wife, someone’s mother, someone’s daughter – her only daughter,” said Esther Carrasca, Harper’s longtime friend.


Carrasca said Harper was bringing food to her husband and two young teens at the time of the crash.

“They went through their first Mother’s Day without her. You know her presents are still in the back of the car, ”Carrasco said. “She won’t come here for the sweet 16. She won’t be here for graduation.”

The family and Carrasco hope the arrest will happen sooner rather than later. They hope that the police will be able to track down the driver, as the car was left at the scene.

KSAT asked police if the car had been stolen or if the legal owner of the Yukon was a suspect, but all they could say was the man they were looking for was still at large.
