LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock Police Captain is still in the hospital, and his condition is improving.
Captain Neal Brumley went on a bike ride in Lynn County on FM 1730 near New Home on Tuesday afternoon when he was hit from behind by a car driven by an illegal immigrant. The driver of the car, 34-year-old Florencio Corredor left the scene.
Investigators located the car, but no driver. Corredor turned himself into the Hockley County Sheriff's Office late Tuesday evening. Corredor was booked for not stopping and getting help after the accident.
While Corredor sits behind bars, Brumley's fellow officers and family have remained by his side. DPS troopers transported Corredor from Hockley County to Lynn County Wednesday afternoon. He was arraigned late Wednesday. His bond was set at $50,000. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) placed a detainer on him which prevents him from bonding out. ICE will take him into custody after the failure to stop and render aid charges are resolved.
Brumley was listed in critical condition on Wednesday, but on Thursday morning, University Medical Center says that he is now in serious condition.
