Motorcyclist killed after losing control of bike, hitting fence identified

Biker took curve too fast, police say

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police say a motorcyclist may have been speeding just before he lost control of his bike and slammed into a wrought iron fence.

The biker, who the medical examiner identified as 45-year-old Justin Scott Patton, died as a result of the crash.

Police responded to the crash around 1 a.m. Wednesday on North W.W. White Road near Loop 410.

They say it appears Patton took a curve too fast as he exited the highway, then hit a curb alongside W.W. White Road and went flying.

Both Patton and the bike slammed into the fence in a parking lot. The motorcycle continued through the other side of the fence into the loading dock of a neighboring property, police said.

Paramedics also arrived at the scene, but were not able to do anything to save him.
