Motorcyclist in critical condition after slamming into flatbed pickup

Bike travels 300 feet after man falls off

SAN ANTONIO – A protective helmet was not enough to help a motorcycle rider avoid serious head injuries early Saturday morning.

Police say the man crashed his cycle into the back of a flat bed pickup around 4 a.m. at Interstate 10 and W.W. White Road.

They say that man then fell from his cycle, but the bike continued another 300 feet before coming to a stop.

The man's helmet fell off during the crash and he suffered head injuries.

EMS transported him to San Antonio Military Medical Center in critical condition.
