A motorcycle accident in San Antonio, involving a pickup truck, sent the motorcyclist to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, officials reported on Friday.

The San Antonio collision occurred on Southwest Military Drive near New Laredo Highway when the driver of the pickup truck pulled out in front of the motorcycle. Police said the motorcyclist had the right of way.

As a result of the collision, the motorcyclist was transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead as a result of injuries he sustained in the motorcycle wreck on Southwest Military Drive.

Motorcycle accidents in Bexar County seemingly continue to climb according to TxDOT statistics, highlighting the need for attentive driving by operators of passenger vehicles as well as motorcyclists. In many situations where a motorcycle crash has occurred, the drivers of passenger vehicles may not have seen the rider, causing them to fail to yield the right of way or strike a motorcyclist. But despite the smaller size of motorcycles in contrast with even small passenger cars, drivers have a responsibility to look out for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycle riders just as they would other vehicles sharing the roadways.
