Unhappy Bad Weekend in San Antonio

We had two hit and runs this weekend. Resulted in two KIA and 2 in the hospital. I don't know how it is there in Houston, but the folks here in SA have no respect for motorcycle riders. Please keep these guys in your thoughts and prayers!

"drunk driver in an SUV swerved into our lane, hit a car, hit two bikes and pushed one of those bikes into a third and the worthless piece of tried to flee the scene but was caught using Police dogs. "

"A 35-year-old motorcyclist was killed early Saturday when a vehicle moved into his lane and struck him from behind before its occupants fled, authorities said.

The two vehicles were traveling southwest on Northwest Loop 410 near Evers Road around 2:30 a.m. when the car, a gray Kia, struck the motorcycle, throwing Santos Martinez onto the highway, according to a police report.

A witness saw about five men and women running from the Kia after the collision. Police searching the area did not locate them, according to the report.

A second vehicle struck Martinez before officers arrived.

The driver of the Kia could face charges for failing to stop and render aid, police spokesman Joe Rios said."

Sucks to hear man. You guys try to keep your heads up. Glad they found the people who did it.

Unhappy

RIP, I was reading Austin paper, they had a hit & run also.
They caught the sucker hidding out in a field near the crash site.
Unfortunately, the biker died at the scene.
