San Antonio, TX – An auto accident reported early Monday morning claimed one man’s life. At around 2:30 a.m., on January 17, the San Antonio Police Department responded to the scene of an accident on Southwest Loop 410.

Reports from the SAPD show that a man was riding a motorcycle on Southwest Loop 410 when his vehicle was struck from behind by a hero truck. The impact of the crash caused the man to be thrown from his vehicle near Old Pearsall Road.

The man suffered fatal injuries in the accident. Emergency crews arrived at the scene to treat the man, who was identified as a 59-year-old man. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the man who lost his life in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas

Every year, motorcycle accidents in the state of Texas claim the lives of more than 400 people. These incidents equate to roughly 10% of victims killed every year across the entire country. In many cases, motorcyclists suffer fatal injuries due to some type of negligence.

Motorcyclists are not protected by steel frames like most other people sharing the road. As a result, they are likely to be thrown from their vehicles and suffer severe injuries. In many cases, motorcyclists suffer fatal injuries in accidents due to some form of negligence. We see many riders killed in crashes caused by speeding drivers, drivers who run red lights, and those who fail to yield the right of way.
