SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Sheriff's Office is investigating a crash that left one man dead and another in serious condition Saturday morning.

The crash happened just after 12:30 a.m. on Foster Road near Summer Fest Drive.

A sheriff's deputy said she saw two motorcycles racing and moments later heard a crash.

The Sheriff's Office said the motorcyclists ran a red light and collided with a sedan driven by a woman in her 60s. A young girl was also in the car.

One of the motorcyclists, Jose Martinez, 20, was taken by medical helicopter to University Hospital, where he later died.

The other motorcyclist was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center in serious condition.

No one in the car was injured.

Investigators are now working to determine if drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
