A motorcycle crash in San Antonio, involving a vehicle, left its rider seriously injured, when an SUV pull out in front of the bike, officials said.
The motorcycle accident took place near Culbera and 18thStreet, reports noted.
According to reports, the SUV was leaving a gas station driveway and pulled in front of the motorcyclist, who couldn’t stop in time and smashed into the vehicle.

The driver of the sport utility vehicle was not injured in the motorcycle accident. The names of those involved have not yet been released and investigations regarding the motorcycle crash in San Antonio are ongoing.
The fuel efficiency of motorcycles has made them a widely popular choice for consumers across the nation. According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, in the U.S. alone, there are as many as 4 million motorcycles registered, accounting for high number of bikes filling roadways. But while motorcycles are a popular and economical choice, they can present consumers with serious risks when involved in a motorcycle accident.
The high speeds possible and little protection offered to motorcyclists make place bikes at a higher risk for fatalities and life threatening injuries. Although helmet use is vital to protecting riders involved in a motorcycle crash, head injuries can sometimes occur, even if the protective equipment is used.
Attentive, alerts and careful driving, especially when motorcyclists are surrounding, is imperative to keeping vehicles occupants and motorcycle riders safe from the dangers tied to such accidents.
