San Antonio, TX (December 20, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident on the City’s South Side ended in injuries late Friday evening. At around 11 p.m., on December 17, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 35.

Reports from the San Antonio Police Department show that a man in his 50s was riding a motorcycle northbound on Interstate 35. For unknown reasons, a red pickup truck merged into the rider near Division Avenue. The impact of the crash caused the rider to lose control of their vehicle. The driver of the pickup truck then fled the scene of the accident.

The motorcyclist was rushed to University Hospital in critical condition.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the motorcyclist who was injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Motorcycle Accidents in Texas

Every year, more than 14,650 people are seriously injured in traffic-related incidents across the state of Texas. People who are using motorcycles at the time of their accidents are at an increased risk of suffering life-altering injuries. The fact that motorcyclists have little more than helmets to protect them during crashes means they are likely to sustain spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even back injuries that require extensive medical care.

When motorcyclists sustain injuries in accidents, due to the negligence of other motorists, they may have legal options available to help them recover. Reaching out to a motorcycle accident lawyer in San Antonio as soon as possible can help you get the justice you deserve. Should you be harmed by another driver, you may be able to obtain compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, vehicle repairs, and more. A skilled legal team can help to ensure your legal rights are protected.
