SAN ANTONIO – A motorcyclist is in critical condition after he crashed on the Highway 90 access road early Thursday morning, San Antonio police said.

The crash occurred just before 3 a.m. on the access road of Highway 90, in the area of Springvale near the Victory Worship Center.

According to police, the 48-year-old man was heading east when he lost control and fell off the bike.

Police said the motorcycle continued to roll onto the highway entrance ramp. His Harley-Davidson skid across the main lanes of the highway and crashed into a guardrail.

A driver of an Audi A4 who pulled into a parking lot after hitting a dead dog heard the motorcycle crash. The driver said the motorcyclist was “wobbling back and forth” before he fell off the bike, according to police.

The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet and suffered head trauma, police said. He was taken to a University Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The access road of the highway was closed as emergency crews worked. It has since reopened.

No other vehicles were involved, police said. No charges are pending at this time.
