A 54-year-old man was arrested Sunday evening for alleged drunken driving after his car struck a motorcycle sending the rider to the hospital with multiple injuries, police said.

The crash occurred around 7 p.m. in the 1500 block of South Gevers on the city's East Side when the man, driving north in a Mercury Grand Marquis hit the Honda Shadow, which was traveling south, said San Antonio police Sgt. Marcus Booth.

It appeared the vehicle was turning into a store at the corner of Gevers and Devine when it hit the motorcycle. The rider, in his mid-40s, was wearing a helmet and was thrown from the bike, witnesses said.

He was transported to Brooke Army Medical Center with serious, but non-life threatening injuries, Booth said.

Booth said the driver of the car faces a driving while intoxicated charge and possibly an intoxication assault charge.
