Lubbock, TX (KCBD) - The man accused of striking an off duty Lubbock police officer with his car and leaving the scene turned himself into authorities late Tuesday night. 

Florencio Coredor, 34, turned himself into authorities in Levelland around 9 p.m.  He is behind bars charged with failure to stop and render aid and will go before a judge in Lynn County Wednesday morning.

DPS Investigators believe Coredor is the driver who hit LPD Captain Neal Brumley Tuesday afternoon on F.M. 1730 just across the Lynn County line. Cpt. Brumley was riding his bike southbound and DPS says he was hit from behind by a Dodge passenger car. Troopers located the car, but for a few hours could not find Coredor.

DPS released a description of Coredor to the media, but he turned himself in. AeroCare transported Cpt. Brumley to University Medical Center where he remains in serious condition. Some fellow officers rushed to UMC after they learned about the accident.
