The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s office has identified a motorcyclist killed in a crash on the city’s South Side overnight.

Quan Van Bach, 28, died after losing control of his motorcycle around midnight near Loop 410 and Moursund Boulevard.

According to police, Van Bach was leading a group of six to ten motorcycles westbound on a 2018 Kawasaki ZX-10R (Ninja) when his motorcycle and Fitts’ motorcycle made contact.

Police said both motorcycles were going faster than 100 miles per hour when Van Bach lost control, and he veered from the right lane entering the grassy interior median.

Van Bach fell from his motorcycle, struck the center cables and the motorcycle continued upright a few hundred feet, police said.

A Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputy discovered the crash scene, but couldn’t find him at first. Van Bach would be found a short time later, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Multiple family members and employees of Van Bach were riding in the group and they notified his wife, who arrived during the investigation, police said.

The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, and EMS all answered the call.
