SAN ANTONIO – Police are searching for the driver of a 2007 Freightliner tractor-trailer that caused a multiple-car wreck, killing one motorcyclist, on Monday.

The truck was traveling at a speed too fast for moderate-to-heavy traffic before it crashed into the back of the motorcyclist around 6:30 p.m. in the 8200 block of Interstate 10 East, police said.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the motorcyclist as 64-year-old Kyle Wayne Perry who died at the scene due to blunt force injuries.

Three vehicles in front of Perry were also impacted in the wreck, causing a Jeep Cherokee to roll over, police said.

The truck, which had a flat-bed trailer attached to it, attempted to brake before impact and jack-knifed on the highway, blocking both eastbound lanes.

The driver of the tractor-trailer fled the scene on foot and did not render aid, police said.
