Excessive Speed Blamed in Two Overnight Motorcycle Accidents

It was a deadly night for local motorcyclists, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

San Antonio Police say one motorcyclist was killed, another critically injured in separate accidents, both blamed on excessive speed.

The first occurred on the city's northwest side, when police say a man on a motorcyle was driving down Babcock Road near Eckhert when he slammed into a vehicle which was turning onto Babcock from a business.  The motorcyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown more than 100 feet by the impact of the wreck, and was pronounced dead at the hosptial.

A few hours later, another motorcyclist who police say was also driving too fast and was not wearing a helmet lost control of his bike on Probandt Street, which is south of downtown.  He skidded some forty feet and slammed into a concrete median.

He was rushed to the hospital where he is expected to survive, but he suffered 'potentially life threatening' head injuries.
