SAN ANTONIO – A woman was hit and killed by a vehicle following a motorcycle crash on the city’s Northeast Side, San Antonio police said.

The crash occurred around 10 p.m. Wednesday in the 12100 block of O’Connor Road, not far from Wurzbach Parkway and Interstate 35.

According to police, the woman, identified Thursday night as 31-year-old Emerald Madl, was riding a motorcycle northbound on O’Connor Road when a Ford Ranger tried to make a left-hand turn from Old O’Connor and failed to yield the right of way. That’s when, police say, the Ford Ranger hit the motorcycle, throwing Madl.

SAPD said as Madl was standing up near the driver-side of the Ford Ranger trying to get her composure, a small, red two-door truck traveling northbound on O’Connor Road hit the woman.

The driver of the Ford Ranger tried to help Madl. Emergency crews, however, pronounced her dead at the scene.

The red two-door truck that hit Madl fled the scene, police said. That driver has not been found.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing, police said.
