SAN ANTONIO — A motorcycle rider lost control, crashed into a mailbox, and was thrown from his bike in a deadly morning crash, the San Antonio Police Department said.

The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. Thursday in the 10400 block of Northampton on the city's north side.

Police said two men were riding their motorcycles together when for an unknown reason, one of the men veered off the neighborhood street onto the sidewalk.
