Man wanted for failure to stop and render aid in Sunday accident arrested

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The man police believe is responsible for the tragic hit and run accident Sunday morning is now behind bars, and so is his wife.

Police arrested 23-year-old Zachary Doss at his home around 11:30 Wednesday night and charged him with failure to stop and render aid.

They also took his 22-year-old wife, Sarah, into custody and charged her with hindering his apprehension. Now they both could face the same punishment. "That is also a 3rd degree felony. Same penalty. 2 to 10 and could be a $10 thousand fine," says Neal Barron with the Lubbock Police Department.

Police say Zachary Doss rear-ended another vehicle at 19th and Raleigh Sunday morning and then fled the scene. Three passengers in the other car remain in the hospital.

Family members of the victims say they don't harbor any hatred towards Doss, but they don't understand why he didn't stay and call 911. "It's kind of hard for me to understand how someone could just see the damage you've done and leave them there to die," said relative, Jay Garcia.

Julia Garcia, 80, remains in critical condition. Her husband, Margarito, is doing much better but remains in the hospital.  "He opened his eyes.  He's able to communicate with us.  It's a really good turn around for my dad," said Garcia.

Doctors released Maria Blaylock from the hospital Wednesday night, but her daughter, 29-year-old Pricilla Sanchez also remains in critical condition.

Family members say they're glad police arrested the man responsible. "I don't know if this young man understands the damage he's done," said Garcia. However, they say the arrest is not their biggest concern right now, and they still have a long way to go before their family member are healthy again. 

Both Zachary and Sarah Doss' cases will go to trial for sentencing.
