LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A warrant has been issued for the arrest of 23-year-old Zachary Doss, in connection with the early morning hit-and-run accident on Sunday at Quaker Avenue and 19th Street.
Lubbock police say Doss was headed west on 19th Street at Raleigh Avenue around 4:15 a.m., when he ran into the back of another vehicle. The truck then slammed into a utility pole. Police say the driver fled the scene, leaving his two injured passengers.
It took jaws-of-life almost 45 minutes to reach the four people in the other vehicle. They ranged in age from 29 to 82.
Everyone on the scene was taken to local hospitals with serious injuries. 55-year-old Maria Blaylock was driving the red car and remains in satisfactory condition. Her parents 80-year-old Julia Garcia and 82-year-old Margarito Garcia are listed in critical condition. Blaylock's daughter, 29-year-old Priscilla Sanchez was also in the car and is listed in critical condition.
An active warrant is out for Doss' arrest. Jail records show he has not been arrested. His bond is set at $55,000 and he faces one felony charge for each passenger in the vehicle police say he allegedly struck. Doss is charged with four counts of Failure to Stop and Render Aid, a felony offense. He could face up to 10 years in prison after seven people were injured in the accident.
