Henry Arizola Killed in Hit-and-Run on Enrique M. Barrera Parkway in San Antonio, TX

UPDATE (October 11, 2022): Sources have identified the victim of this accident as 51-year-old Henry Arizola. Authorities are still searching for leads about the vehicle and driver that fatally struck Arizola.

San Antonio, TX — September 26, 2022, a bicyclist was killed in a hit-and-run accident along Enrique M. Barrera Parkway in West San Antonio.

Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 1:30 a.m. along Barrera Parkway near Gena Drive. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim may have been riding his bicycle on or by the shoulder of the roadway when a passing vehicle of unknown make or model ran partly off the road and hit him. The driver then left the scene without stopping.

The cyclist was ejected during the collision and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation continues as police seek clues about the hit-and-run vehicle and/or its driver.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Henry Arizola Hit-and-Run in San Antonio

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. That person must be apprehended, both to face justice and to see how they could possibly try to justify abandoning a dying person in the road. I hope police efforts find evidence at or near the scene--vehicle debris, witnesses, camera footage from nearby homes or businesses--yield helpful results.

In the meantime we're left with a lot of questions, chief among them probably "Why'd 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 work by police and cooperation from the community will lead to 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.
