San Antonio, TX (March 14, 2022) – One man has lost his life as a result of a motorcycle accident in the San Antonio area on Saturday morning, March 12. At around 5:30 a.m., emergency crews were notified that an accident on US Highway 281 required assistance.

Reports provided by the San Antonio Police Department show that 45-year-old Salvador Tirado was riding a motorcycle north on US Highway 281. For unknown reasons, a Honda Element came up behind the motorcycle and crashed into the rear of the vehicle near bitters Road.

Tirado was ejected from the motorcycle, resulting in fatal injuries. Emergency crews responded to the scene and pronounced him deceased from his injuries.

The Honda spun out and came to reset against the concrete barrier. The female driver remained at the scene.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Salvador Tirado. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas

Every year, more than 450 motorcyclists are fatally injured in motorcycle accidents across the state of Texas. These accidents often have a profound effect on surviving family members who are forced to endure the mental, emotional, and financial consequences of a tragic loss.

In many instances, families have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to cover funeral and burial costs. Many people lose a source of income that their family has grown to depend on.

Regrettably, the majority of motorcycle accidents are a result of negligence. We see far too many people drive their vehicles while impaired, distracted, or while speeding. Motorcycles are already challenging to see. When drivers engage in these types of reckless actions, it can have fatal consequences for riders sharing the road.
