San Antonio, TX – Motorcyclist Injured in Hit-and-Run Motorcycle Accident on Southcross Blvd
San Antonio, TX (June 8, 2019) On the evening of June 7th, a motorcycle accident happened on Southcross Boulevard at approximately 9:15 p.m. A man in his 20’s was driving his motorcycle westbound on Southcross Boulevard when a SUV cut in front of him and knocked him off of his motorcycle.
When the paramedics arrived, they found the motorcyclist injured in the roadway and noticed that he wasn’t wearing a helmet. They instantly transported him to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment of head trauma.
Sadly, the driver of the SUV did not stop at the scene to see if the motorcyclist was okay. Once the police find and arrest the driver, he or she will be charged with failure to stop and render aid.
Our thoughts are with the injured motorcyclist as he recovers.
Hit-and-Run Motorcycle Accidents in San Antonio
In 2018, about 16 motorcyclists lost their lives in vehicle collisions in San Antonio. When drivers strike motorcyclists at night and continue to drive off, it’s often because they’re under the influence of drugs or alcohol and don’t want to be caught by the police. Drivers could also be on the run from a previous crime, causing them to drive recklessly as they attempt to escape the authorities.
