Texas - A group of motorcyclists depended on horsepower, not reindeer, to help them deliver gifts to children in need, even after a rider was injured in a wreck Tuesday morning.

About halfway through their toy deliveries, a rider with the inaugural "For His Glory" ride rear-ended a motorcyclist blocking traffic for the 20-person group on Southeast Military Drive near South W.W. White Road, Police Officer Jim Ratcliff said.

The cyclist flipped and was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center with head injuries, Ratcliff said, adding that the rider was wearing a helmet. He later was listed in stable condition.

Albert Gonzales, co-founder of the ride, said although the crash temporarily stalled toy drop-offs, it wouldn't hinder the participants' efforts.

Armed with a list of children in need, provided by Child Protective Services, the leather-clad riders - who wore Santa hats and elf caps - proceeded on to the Mission Del Lago apartments, where Fred, 5, and Maria, 3, eagerly awaited their arrival.

Santa, who rode into the complex in the bed of a pickup, gave each child several gifts, and then led the motorcyclists in "Joy to the World" and "O Come, All Ye Faithful."

Bianca Tovar, 26, said the group gave her children a Christmas they otherwise wouldn't have had. Fred is autistic and has other learning disabilities, said Tovar, a single mother.

"I didn't have no money or anything," she said, her voice cracking as tears filled her eyes. "We had a very hard year. It really means a lot that there are people like this in the world."

Gonzales said his group bought gifts for eight families.

"We all come from this world on the South Side," he said, "and we were just looking to do something positive. We hope to continue next year."
