Man killed in motorcycle crash on access road of Loop 410, police say

Daniel Santiago, 23, died in crash around 9:45 p.m. near Evers Road

SAN ANTONIO – A 23-year-old man was killed in a motorcycle crash on the Northwest Side late Wednesday night, San Antonio police said.

Investigators said the motorcyclist, identified as Daniel Santiago, died at the scene on the access road of Loop 410 near Evers Road around 9:30 p.m.

Santiago was riding his 2004 Kawasaki ZX1000-C (Ninja) westbound on the access road when he approached the Evers Road intersection, which had a line of cars in the center lane. Police said the line of cars was past a steep crest of a hill.

Santiago was traveling behind two Mustangs that narrowly avoided hitting the last car in the line, which was a red 2017 Subaru WRX. After the two Mustangs moved out of the way, Santiago laid down his bike and crashed into the back of the Subaru.

He was wearing a helmet, police said.

The driver of the Subaru was not intoxicated, stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators. No charges are expected to be filed.

Police said Santiago’s girlfriend was at the scene to notify the next of kin, who then arrived at the scene.
