A hit-and-run accident on Culebra Road in Northwest Side caused the death of a 26-year-old man, last Wednesday night.
The victim was identified by local authorities as Stephen Hernandez, 26.
Just after 8:00 p.m., San Antonio police officers responded to a wreck along Culebra Road near 28th Street. According to a report, Stephen Hernandez was riding a motorcycle along the eastbound lanes of Culebra when it collided with a brown truck that drifted onto its path. Hernandez sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash. He was rushed to University Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
The driver of the brown truck did not render aid to the victim and fled the scene. His identification has not been released by police officials.
An investigation is underway.

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. That is roughly about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Driving while distracted, under the influence of alcohol, and at an unsafe speed are three most common causes of car accidents.
