Local authorities are investigating a collision between a motorcycle and another vehicle on Interstate 35 near Farm to Market 2252 Road last Sunday afternoon.

According to Schertz police, the wreck took place at around 2:06 p.m. A motorcycle was driving erratically along I-35 when it collided with a vehicle for yet unknown reasons. The force of the impact ejected the rider off his bike. He then landed on the median where he was found unconscious by emergency crews. The motorcyclist, identified as 22-year-old Zarchary Hartley, was rushed to San Antonio Military Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

No other injuries were reported.

Based on a preliminary investigation, Hartley was not wearing a helmet during the time of the crash. An 18-wheeler truck driver who was behind Hartley provided officers with a dash camera footage of the crash, police said.

The crash is under investigation.

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of the day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Furthermore, the NHTSA also reports that 15% of fatal car accidents happen near intersections while the whopping 85% happen on the open road, which is the case for this particular vehicular accident.
