Police have the car involved in accident that killed a father

By James Clark | email 

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Police now confirm that a vehicle confiscated last week was indeed the same one that struck and killed Juan Antonio Carmona, 23, last Friday morning.

Carmona's body was found along the 200 block of East Parkway and police describe it as a hit and run.  Damage left from the scene led police to look for a black Mitsubishi with damage in the front. A vehicle fitting that description was found near 62nd and York on Friday and taken by police.

"The vehicle is indeed the vehicle involved in the situation," says Lubbock Police Sergeant John Hayes.  "We're still taking statements to pinpoint the specific driver."

"To just hit and run, and leave him there like a dog to die that ain't right. That's a human being," Carmona's mother, Jesusa Maria Carmona, said the day after Thanksgiving.  "He had a life, he had two kids to take care of," she cried.

Carmona left behind two children ages 6 and 4.  A memorial fund has been set up in Juan Carmona's name at any Wells Fargo branch.
