He was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead an hour later.

Police said Snow was riding a 2005 Kawasaki motorcycle northbound on O’Connor Road as the black SUV, which was reportedly “driving erratically,” was heading southbound.

The SUV entered a turn-only lane to turn left onto Larkdale Drive. That’s when, police said, the SUV “violated the right of way of the Kawasaki” and crashed into Snow.

The driver of the SUV did not stop to render aid and fled eastbound on Larkdale, police said. As of Tuesday morning, the driver has not been located.

Snow was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Once located, the driver of the SUV will face a charge of failure to stop and render aid, resulting in death.
