According to police, a man was driving a motorcycle westbound at a high rate of speed without lights when it collided with a Nissan Altima that was exiting a Valero gas station. It’s unclear if the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.

The man was taken by ambulance to University Hospital with life-threatening injuries, where at last check, he was listed in critical condition.

SAPD said the driver of the Nissan called 911 and then fled on foot without giving his information. The driver eventually came back to the scene approximately 30 minutes later with family members and was subsequently arrested, a preliminary police report states.

The driver of the sedan, a 22-year-old man, was taken into custody on a charge of failure to stop and render aid. He has not been identified.

The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department and EMS all responded to the call.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing, police said.
