SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are searching for the driver of a vehicle that caused a motorcycle to crash and then fled early Monday morning.

The crash happened around midnight in the 930 block of Gembler Road, not far from North W.W. White Road on the city’s East Side.

According to police, a man and a woman were riding a motorcycle on Gembler Road when another vehicle tried to pass a bus that was pulled over on the side of the road.

SAPD said based on the condition of the motorcycle, they determined the bike was not hit, but did still cause the crash. The driver of the vehicle however, did not stop and fled the scene. They have not been found.

The 53-year-old man on the motorcycle was taken by EMS to an area hospital with a possible broken right ankle. The woman sustained visible injuries and was taken by family to the hospital for a follow-up.

So far, no arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing, police said.
