A motorcycle rider died after crashing on San Antonio's northeast side.

Matias Ramirez, 62, was heading down I-35  near Rittiman when he tried to merge at Loop 410.

Police think he lost control and slammed into the concrete wall.

Ramirez was wearing a helmet. 

A couple heading out of town saw the crash and was one of several good Samaritans who stopped to help.

"They were actually on their motorcycles going down to [Corpus Christi]," said Officer Robert Deckard with San Antonio police.

The couple wanted to help because the woman on the bike is a nurse at San Antonio Military Medical Center.

"She pulled over and started performing CPR with chest compressions," said Deckard.

Ramirez was taken to S.A.M.M.C.  but it was too late to help him.

He died at the hospital.UPDATE: Motorcycle Rider Killed on Highway
