A local man who died in a motorcycle accident over the weekend has been identified.

Justin Garcia, 24, died after his motorcycle collided with a vehicle.

It was Saturday evening when police responded to the intersection of Staples Street and Texan Trail on Saturday evening after reports of the accident.

On arrival, a 24-year-old male victim was found with serious injuries and taken to a local hospital. He was not wearing a helmet, according to police. Authorities said he passed away during treatment.

Officials said it appeared that the motorcyclist had failed to yield right-of-way when turning onto Staples Street before being struck by another vehicle. 

Investigators are still searching for the driver of the other vehicle, who left the scene before officers arrived.
