Cyclist Killed in Hit-and-Run on Culebra Road in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, TX — September 21, 2022, a cyclist was struck and killed by a vehicle in a hit-and-run on Culebra Road in Northwest San Antonio.

Authorities say the incident happened around 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of Culebra and Arcadia Creek. Police are still trying to work out exactly what happened, but investigators believe the victim was riding a bicycle in or near the road when a vehicle passed through and hit him. The driver then left the scene without stopping or calling for help.

The cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on San Antonio Hit-and-Run on Culebra Rd

It's shameful that someone would leave a person they hit behind like this. For all anyone knows the time between the driver leaving and someone calling for help could have been crucial in saving the victim's life. It's vital that the suspect be located and apprehended, both to ensure they're charged and to see what they could possibly have to say about abandoning a dying person in the road.

So why did they run? Did they just panic, or was this a conscious and cold-blooded effort to avoid responsibility? Did they have something to hide? Drugs, warrants, drunk driving--these are all common reasons people flee crash scenes, and they can have additional consequences if brought to light.

Hopefully continued efforts from police and cooperation from the community lead to identifying a suspect so someone can answer for this tragic event. If everyone remains diligent and does their part, I believe the victim's loved ones will see justice done.
