It was unclear if a second Patriot Guard Rider was involved in the accident, which caused the procession to stop briefly on Interstate-35E north of Salado.
The rider's condition and identity are not known at this time.
The procession Tuesday will cover 200 miles from Midlothian to Austin. The motorcade includes military personnel and first responders in addition to the Patriot Guard Riders.
